Bio/Research

My research explores the Greco-Roman roots of Western ideas about the physical body, the natural world, matter, and the non-human, and especially the problems these ideas create for concepts of the subject, ethics, and politics. I also study the long afterlife of these ideas, especially in twentieth and twenty-first century philosophy, and try to conceptualize the implications of reception for contemporary engagements with antiquity. My areas of specialization encompass ancient medicine and life science, Greek literature—especially Homer and tragedy—ancient philosophy, reception studies, literary theory, and continental philosophy.
