I received my Ph.D. in Intellectual History from the Johns Hopkins University Humanities Center in 2013. I am currently co–editing a book of interviews with French phenomenologists (to be published by Fordham in 2014) and working out a systematic interpretation of the history of the modern philosophy of subjectivity. I claim that concepts of human finitude motivate and control the basic problems of modern epistemology and metaphysics in Descartes, Kant, and Heidegger. My training in philosophy is both phenomenological and analytic. Other interests include Heidegger's interpretation of the history of metaphysics, Islamic theology and its relation to Greek thought, and political theology.
Recent Selected Publications:
Quiet Powers of the Possible: Interviews in Contemporary French Phenomenology (Forthcoming).
"Givenness and the Basic Problems of Phenomenology" (Forthcoming).
