Dissertation Description: 

My dissertation, The Conflict of the Faculties and Its Aftermath: Post-Kantian Political Ethics in Hegel, Arendt, and Habermas, is a political-theoretic inquiry into what I take to be the problem at the center of Kant’s polemical work The Conflict of the Faculties (Der Streit der Fakultäten) and its effective history (Wirkungsgeschichte) in the political-theoretic works of G.W. F. Hegel, Hannah Arendt, and Jürgen Habermas.
