About James Tunney
I left a successful academic career in law to focus on spiritual and artistic development. Having published plenty of academic articles and reports, consulted internationally, as well as presenting talks on various aspects of globalisation in many countries around the world - I am now writing about Mysticism, Fiction and soon to come; a Cultural Polemic. I have also been painting from my studio in Sweden and exhibited in several countries for more then a decade.
To hear me talk on issues related to my writing, visit New Thinking Allowed, YouTube channel where I have done multiple interviews with Dr Mishlove. All interviews are also listed and linked on the Interview section of this site, including interviews on other channels.
I will be exhibiting at Galleri Fågel on the 9-31 of October.
I am glad to announce that Human Entrance to Transhumanism, my follow-up to Empire of Scientism and TechBondAge is available.
The Author & Poet
I have just published Human Entrance to Transhumanism, following up on Empire of Scientism and TechBondAge.
Later in the year my book of mystic poetry will be released.
In 2020 my second book on Mysticism, 'The Mystery of the Trapped Light - Mystical Thoughts in the Dark Age of Scientism', was published.
In 2019 I published my first poetic book on mysticism, a conspiracy novel and a dystopian novel. I am in the process of writing more books and aim to make a series on Mysticism & Consciousness and a series of pamphlets.
You can find my books in any Amazon store, both as paperbacks and e-books. My books are all linked to my author page amazon.com/author/jamestunney
If it is not linked to my author page or listed on this website - I did not write it.
My non-academic writing is in a wide range of categories, both fiction and non-fiction but although the range might appear wide in its scope, they are all linked by two themes. The first is the idea that individuals are primarily spiritual beings that must evolve and be spiritually self-aware of the nature of consciousness. The second issue flowing therefrom is this: the individual must recognise that they are prey to forces which seek to dispirit them and control their consciousness.
All academic articles were, in one way or another, about issues associated with globalisation. For more information see the 'Academic' section.
My books are all united in their concern for the primacy of individual spiritual freedom of the human person and the threat of our destruction and deconstruction by the scientocracy.
For more information, see the 'Book' section on this site or better still, visit the Amazon store.

My paintings can often be described as expressionistic and are almost always rich in colour. I have a great fascination of the figure in art and have painted many reflective portraits of known figures. To further explore this I have also made a few paintings of known figures, sitting for portraits or preparatory sketches, such as Sean Scully.
I mostly paint using oil on linen or silk canvases. I sometimes use other materials such as acrylic, pastels, charcoal and gold leaf.
I have a profound interest in art, the history of art and the great European heritage of painting.
I have been painting my whole life. I am convinced that painting harbours a deep inherent power that will overcome the challenges of technology and prevail over contemporary trends. Original art has the capacity to change your surroundings and affect your perspective.
My art is represented in private collections as far away as New Zealand and coast to coast in the US.
I am selling my art through galleries, fairs, auctions and from my studio. Should you be interested in purchasing or showing any of my work - do not hesitate to get in touch.
