In an age of often divisive and discombobulating identity politics, whilst naturally proud of his Capetonian, English and Martinican heritage and family ties, Lindsay is even prouder to be a human being and loves the famous adage by the Latin playwright Terence (himself an African slave from Carthage): “I am a human being and I consider nothing human alien to me."


After reading French and Italian at Lincoln College, Oxford, Lindsay moved to London and began post-graduate research in Medieval Latin and Italian literature and philosophy, but swiftly discovered that his future did not lie in libraries, but in communicating his ideas with a wider audience.


He speaks French, Italian and Creole and is an ardent admirer of BoethiusBaudelaire and Ben Webster.
