Chahid Akoury received his Ph.D. from the department of Philosophy Art and Critical Thought at the European Graduate School. His dissertation considers a revolutionary event as a creative process of deactualization present in the form of an opening up in both time and space. He elaborated on this premise by turning to painting, classical music, architecture, literature and poetry, theoretical physics, and mathematics for examples and as explicatory media. Based on his PhD dissertation, he published a book in 2014 titled, “Creative Deactualization”. He teaches Foundation Design Studios  and senior Graphic Design courses with main research interests in space and phenomenology, design thinking and embodied cognition, and perception.
