Though he had an early interest in painting, Michael Spicher put his brushes aside to pursue a deeper understanding of the nature of art and beauty. To this end, he earned a PhD in philosophy with a focus on philosophy of art, aesthetics, and political philosophy. Now, he combines his analytical and creative foundations to write, speak, consult, and make art.
Based in Boston, Michael Spicher works as a writer, editor, and philosopher, while playing music and painting on the side. He is the Founder and Director of the Aesthetics Research Lab, which exists to promote and educate about the ways that aesthetics permeates our lives for the better.
