Research

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.
