Interview with Simon Kenny

Simon Kenny is an author, technologist and educator whose work combines probing questions with technical thinking. Simon has taught as a lecturer at the University of Limerick, Ireland. As a writer on the topics of belief and spirituality, Simon brings a keen awareness of philosophy and contemporary politics to his experience of spiritual and religious life, and his works seek to understand the diverse forms that personal convictions often take.

In his new book: A Critical Introduction to Tarot: Examining the Nature of a Belief in Tarot, he integrates a broad range of topics and teachings—from politics, philosophy and psychology to Freemasonry, statistics, self-help, and much more--to invite a new way of demystifying Tarot.
