Andy West is an author, philosopher, teacher and facilitator. Andy’s memoir ‘The Life Inside’ explores his relationship with prisons and philosophy. As someone who has had family members in prison, he learnt first hand what it was like to visit and experience ‘the life inside’ from a very young age. He went on to teach philosophy in prisons, and his research has also been in this area of teaching and the themes that emerge such as freedom, justice, punishment and prisoners as persons.
