E. John Winner
Long deeply involved in the poetry, music, and performance arts scenes in Western New York, while working at every non-criminal job available, from farm-hand to book seller, E. John Winner eventually received a Doctorate in English from SUNY Albany, with a dissertation on “Hegelian Rhetoric in a Text by Paul de Man.” Afterwards, he studied two additional years, in the philosophies of Buddhism, Pragmatism, and Phenomenology.
He taught for twelve years as an adjunct composition instructor, and served twelve years as a Licensed Practical Nurse. Health issues led him to accept an non-stressful desk job in a security agency.

Mark English has a strong interest in the way language and the broader culture influence individual thinking and an unhealthy obsession with the general and popular culture of the early and middle decades of the 20th century.
After completing undergraduate studies in English and French literature and an MA in English with a strong history of ideas component, he studied linguistic theory (focusing on syntax and phonology within a broadly Chomskyan framework). His PhD dissertation was on the thought of Louis Rougier [1889-1982], a largely forgotten figure who nonetheless played a significant role in European intellectual life, especially during the 1920s and 30s.
A regular contributor to The Electric Agora almost since its inception, Mark also maintains several personal sites, including the blogs Conservative Tendency and Language, Life and Logic.
