research overview

  • My research focuses on the history of philosophy generally and of political philosophy more specifically. My work has largely focused on the emergence of Socratic political philosophy out of Pre-Socratic and Pre-Philosophic figures, and how that emergence shaped the role of reason in initial conceptions of scientific or philosophic life, that is, the life devoted to the pursuit of knowledge. I have also written on modern philosophy and film.
