Biography

Focus of Dissertation

My doctoral dissertation investigates the concept of experience in the works of M. Foucault: starting from certain themes in German Idealism's preoccupation with experience (especially those revolving around the transcendental/empirical divide), I examine how experience might be conceived once we give up transcendental arguments and immerse it in historical social practices.

Research Interests

My current research interests include: the methodology of the social sciences, the limits of naturalism in ethics, and aesthetic reasoning.
