We have research expertise in post-Kantian philosophy and Critical Theory (where this includes Marxism).
We are particularly interested in the influence of post-Kantian philosophy on critical theory and in the ways in which neglected figures in post-Kantian philosophy can provide resources for contemporary critical theory.
A key area of interest for our research is translating philosophical texts from the traditions of post-Kantianism and critical theory. In collaboration with Conny Rhode, Dr James Clarke has translated J. B. Erhard's 1795 essay Apologie des Teufels and is currently editing a series of translations of early post-Kantian philosophical texts for the British Journal for the History of Philosophy.
