Personal profile


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 my 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. 

I also edit this online repository on work: onworkd.edu.au

as well as a newsletter: https://onwork.substack.com/

Research interests

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.
