Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

In my doctoral dissertation, I examine European conservatism by analysing the political philosophy of Joseph de Maistre and his paradoxical relationship with universalism and pluralism.

My focus has been on intellectual history and political philosophy. I am interested in political ideologies and their interrelations, as well as their philosophical and historical formation. My special interests include universalism, liberalism, conservatism, the Enlightenment, the Counter-Enlightenment, democracy, societal polarization and the French revolutions as well as their philosophical and political consequences.
