My research focuses on topics at the intersection of metaphysics and ethics in Kant’s critical philosophy, and on how such topics are interpreted and developed by post-Kantian thinkers such as Fichte and Schelling and by Jewish philosophers such as Maimon and Rosenzweig.
My book, For the Love of Metaphysics: Nihilism and the Conflict of Reason from Kant to Rosenzweig (Oxford University Press, 2018), offers a new perspective on the history of German Idealism that focuses on the role of the principle of sufficient reason and the idea of a primacy of practical reason.
The project aims to reconceive the relation between individuality and interconnectedness in modern societies by recovering foundational insights regarding the idea of harmony from Enlightenment thought.
This book project aims to present a theory of the mental development of persons. It builds on conceptions of the mind from the Enlightenment and the post-Kantian periods, according to which the mind is understood in terms of a living being endowed with mental powers.
This book presents a novel contextualist interpretation of Kant’s ideas of reason, reconciling noumenalist and fictionalist readings of ideas.
This book explores the intricate relationship between becoming an individual person and knowing oneself as such by studying Kant’s distinctive account of psychological personhood.
The research project was carried out at the University of Freiburg from 2016 to 2019, explored contemporary accounts of the first-person perspective and the purportedly special epistemic status of I-thoughts.
In a series of papers, I studied metaphysical and methodological issues in Kant’s account of empirical psychology.
