Skye Cleary


Skye teaches at Columbia University, the City University of New York, the New York Public Library, and the New School of Psychotherapy and Counseling (London). She specializes in existential philosophies, leadership philosophies, and organizational behavior. After being inspired to study philosophy during her MBA (university medalist, Macquarie Graduate School of Management, Australia), coupled with a burning desire better to understand human relations and behavior, she completed a PhD in existentialism. Her first book Existentialism and Romantic Love (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) is currently being translated into Turkish. Skye is an associate editor with the American Philosophical Association, a certified fellow with the American Philosophical Practitioners Association, and she co-founded the Manhattan Love Salon. Before becoming a philosopher, Skye was an international equity arbitrageur and management consultant. She writes for The Huffington Post, The Philosopher’s Zone, Aeon Ideas, and others.
