Christian Kronsted ’14

Class of 2014, Major in Philosophy

Ph.D. candidate in Philosophy and Cognitive Science, The University of Memphis

The Philosophy and Religious Studies program at MMC is near and dear to my heart. The MMC program provided an excellent foundation in philosophy and gave me a home for four years. I would not be where I am today without the training I received at MMC. I wholeheartedly recommend the philosophy and religious studies program to anyone who wants a rigorous education in philosophy that values personal growth and creativity.


Christian wanted to make philosophy more accessible so he worked with faculty member Carrie-Ann Biondi and developed Cogito, the world’s first philosophy card game. It’s a cross between Uno and games like Magic: The Gathering. Christian wants everyone to “grow down” and think some great thoughts—through play. In 2015, Christian earned his MA in Philosophy at the University of Chicago. He is currently working towards his Ph.D. at the University of Memphis with a specialization in embodied cognition, narrative theory, and philosophy of dance.
