Ken Wheeler, aka The Angry Photographer, aka Theoria Apophasis, is a YouTuber. He’s best known for his reviews of cameras and lenses. Even so, many of his videos delve into subjects completely unrelated to photography.
These include magnetism, metaphysics, classics and Buddhism. Although he puts forward his ideas extremely assertively, he has no expertise, accreditation or qualifications in any of these fields.
Ken’s advice on camera and lens selection is relatively innocuous, although YouTube offers many, far better photography channels than his. When he opines on other topics, his ignorance and arrogance are on full display.
The American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, 5th Edition (DSM 5), lists a condition known as Delusional Disorder, Grandiose Type. The central theme of this condition is, “the conviction of having some great talent or insight or of having made some important discovery.”
Ken Wheeler claims to be the only person in the world to correctly understand magnetism, to have discovered a Grand Unified Theory of the Universe, and to be the world’s foremost authority on the Buddhist doctrine of Anatta (no-self) among other demonstrably false convictions.
Experts have contradicted Ken on all of these claims using facts and evidence, but he persists in asserting them. He appears to wholeheartedly believe his odd notions, even though they’re patently absurd.
This website is intended for YouTube viewers who may feel gaslit by Ken Wheeler’s jargon and dogmatism. Rest assured that you’re not the one who’s mistaken when you question his odd notions or his expertise.
