Jon Ivan Gill is an avid scholar of Whiteheadian process thought, metaphysics, cultural studies, aesthetics, existentialist philosophy, and constructive & secular theology. His creative tangent ranges from underground hip-hop culture to cryptic lyrics he pens in rap, poetry, journal refereeing, book reviews, and academic essays & critiques. He earned his PhD. candidate in “Philosophy of Religion and Theology” & Philosophy at Claremont Graduate University. Jon synthesizes Whiteheadian “process theological” and philosophical concepts of the idea of God with the aesthetics of underground rap creativity in his work. He postulates a perpetually-evolving, socially-transformative, and theopoetic universal philosophy of life. His staunch support of a truly philosophical and theological trans-disciplinary discourse involves the inclusion of everything from aesthetic atheism and religious pluralism to subversive use of the arts.
