research overview

  • Dr. Douglass's research examines the multiple intersections of contemporary philosophy, literature, theology, psychology and literary theory with ancient Greek, Latin and Hebrew texts, as well as 19th-century Russian Literature. This includes questions of intertextuality, hermeneutics, aesthetics, epistemology and reception history. Concerned with a dialogical and inter-animating approach to reading ancient texts, Prof. Douglass reads together such thinkers as Plato, Aristotle, Paul, the Rabbinic tradition, Augustine, the Cappadocian Fathers, Dostoevsky, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Ricoeur, Levinas, Derrida, Badiou and Marion.
