The Philosophy of a Mad Man is an autobiographical work documenting the life story and key insights of British philosopher Steven Colborne.


It has often been said that there is a fine line between madness and genius. This saying is epitomised by author Steven Colborne, who in this new edition of his debut book release (revised and updated for 2019) describes the amazing life story that led him to be diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, and which also gave him deep insights into the workings of the human mind — insights which present a challenge to contemporary scientific thinking on the subject.


Complete with humour, sadness, and enlightenment, The Philosophy of a Mad Man is divided into two parts, with Part 1 detailing the author’s gruelling spiritual journey, and Part 2 expounding a philosophical perspective which tackles some of philosophy’s biggest problems, including the nature of God, free will, consciousness, and the meaning of life. At the very least, this book is a fascinating read, but it also has the potential to transform readers’ understanding of reality entirely.

About the author

Steven Colborne is the author of several acclaimed books in the philosophical theology genre. His work offers deep insights into all of the big problems of philosophy and theology, with a focus on the divine sovereignty versus human free will predicament, especially as it relates to the Christian worldview.


Steven is a first-class BA (Hons) graduate of the University of Westminster and holds a PG Cert in Philosophy and Religion from Heythrop College, University of London. He was born in Cambridge, grew up in Abingdon in Oxfordshire, and currently lives in London, England. The son of an English father and a Dutch mother, Steven has had a quite remarkable spiritual journey which has involved immersive explorations of both Eastern and Western spirituality, as well as several spells in psychiatric hospital following episodes of psychosis.


Among other books, Steven’s catalogue of releases includes a spiritual memoir (The Philosophy of a Mad Man), a compilation of academic essays (A Collection of Essays by Steven Colborne), and a systematic presentation of his philosophical perspective (God’s Grand Game: Divine Sovereignty and the Cosmic Playground). As well as being a prolific author, Steven also runs the popular philosophy blog Perfect Chaos, where he has written over 500 articles for an audience of over 6000 subscribers from more than 200 different countries.
