His thesis is titled “Reason, Language and Experience in German Philosophy from 1759 to 1960″ – and particularly focuses on the works of Immanuel Kant, Johann Georg Hamann, Johann Gottfried Herder, Friedrich Schlegel, Friedrich von Hardenberg (Novalis), Friedrich Nietzsche, Walter Benjamin, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Martin Heidegger, and Hans-Georg Gadamer.
He has a chapter titled “Hamann, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein on the Language of Philosophers” in Hamann and the Tradition (Northwestern University Press, 2012). For other publications see this page.
He is interested in how approaches from intellectual history, the social sciences and philosophy can be combined to understand and engage with ideas that shape the world. In addition to his doctoral research, he is working on side projects on the politics of transparency and on how journalists can utilise approaches from the social sciences to enhance coverage of complex issues.
