Matthew Del NevoMatthew Del Nevo grew up in Oxford, England. He moved to Israel and worked at the Four Homes of Mercy in Bethany and studied creative writing at the Bezalel Foundation in Jerusalem.
Matthew has a background in social science and in theology. He has been based in Sydney since 1987. He wrote a doctoral dissertation at the University of Sydney on Le Livre des questions (7 vols.) by Egyptian-born French Jewish poet Edmond Jabès.
Matthew is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the Catholic Institute of Sydney, a Pontifical faculty. Matthew’s books are mainly to do with soulfulness and harmony in a soulless and noisy age.
Nietzsche wrote and Heidegger commented, “The wasteland grows." T. S. Eliot's Four Quartets point even beyond this acknowledgment. Matthew is interested in the overlap between revelatory philosophy, religion, and literature, and their multiple and mutual reflections among us.
