David Wood is an English philosopher. Introduced to phenomenology by Wolfe Mays at Manchester, he undertook doctoral research in philosophy at New College, Oxford, where Jacques Derrida was a frequent visitor. Influenced by animal rights activists led by the Godlovitchs (now known as the Oxford Group; Peter Singer, author of Animal Liberation was associated with them), David became a vegetarian and started the group Ecology Action. In 1974 he studied in Paris, attending lectures by Lévi-Strauss, Foucault, Derrida, Ricoeur and Serres. David became chair of the philosophy department at Warwick and director of the Centre for Research in Philosophy and Literature. He left for Vanderbilt in 1994, to become chair in 1995. He has been a visiting academic at Berkeley, Yale and Stony Brook, teaching at Duquesne and Turin. David Wood is also an active sculptor and earth-artist. He is director of the 175-acre Yellowbird sculpture park and wildlife refuge at Woodbury, Tennessee.
