Research Interests

My earliest research interest, which materialised in my first book, was in the philosophy of psychoanalysis. Since then my work has concentrated chiefly on Kant and post-Kantian philosophy. I have written on Fichte, Schelling, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, and the aesthetic turn in post-Kantianism. A collection of papers that I co-edited with Matthew Grist, The Transcendental Turn (OUP), appeared this year. I am presently working on the legacy of Kant's Third Critique.


The undergraduate and graduate courses that I teach are on classical German Philosophy (Kant, German Idealism) and on later figures and themes in C19 philosophy. I have recently given a research seminar on Kant's Critique of Judgement and have co-taught with Tom Stern another on Schopenhauer and Nietzsche.
