Projects per year
I was educated in Paris (Lycée Louis-le-Grand, École Normale Supérieure and Paris IV-Sorbonne), and Germany (Hegel-Archiv at the Ruhr Universität Bochum and Freie-Universität in Berlin). I received mty PhD from Paris IV-Sorbonne in 1998 and began working in the Philosophy Department at Macquarie in 2002.
I am an editor of Critical Horizons, a journal of philosophy and social theory.
My areas of research specialisation are:
- Social and political theory, especially work, recognition and equality.
- German philosophy, especially Hegel and the Hegelian tradition
- Critical Theory, especially the work of Axel Honneth
- Phenomenology, especially Merleau-Ponty
- Continental aesthetics
My current research projects focus on:
- The case for and against work
- Paradoxes of equality
- The iconography of political concepts
Research student supervision
I am available to supervise post-graduate projects in a number of areas of contemporary social and political philosophy, notably on work and recognition, as well as in areas of contemporary French and German philosophy, notably post-Hegelian thought and phenomenology.
