PEOPLE

  • Jacob Reynolds

    Academy of Ideas

    Jacob read politics and philosophy at the University of Sheffield, before reading the BPhil in philosophy at St Cross College, Oxford. During his studies he read widely in philosophy, developing a special interest in political philosophy and continental philosophy, especially the work of Hannah Arendt. During his time at Sheffield, Jacob was part of a group of friends who pioneered a public discussion forum, the Sheffield Salon, modelled on the salons of Enlightenment Europe. He joined SHM in 2015 as a consultant and project manager, before joining the Academy of Ideas in summer 2018. In his spare time, he enjoys continuing to read philosophy and literature, cooking – especially soufflés – and scouring London for the perfect caffé piccolo.
