I am Aurora, a graduate student in Philosophy at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. ​I lose sleep on questions that have captivated the human mind for thousands of years​. In my current inquiry, I explore the history of teleological explanations of human-nature relationships.

Beyond the realm of philosophy, I find joy in music and poetry. I am a believer in the relevance of philosophical musings, as in the words of Socrates, philosophy is the greatest kind of music (61a3).
