Research

Area of specialization: German Jewish intellectual history and Continental philosophy, especially Hermann Cohen (1842-1918), Martin Buber (1873-1965), Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929), and Leo Strauss (1899-1973).

A volume with essays on Jewish Philosophy of Religion as Mosaic Apologetics (Jüdische Religionsphilosophie als Apologie des Mosaismus) is under contract with Mohr Siebeck (Tübingen).

In a departure into the field of philosophical historiography I am also working on a history of Jerusalem and its theological-political meanings (under contract with Wiley-Blackwell).
