Forschungsthema

A Kantian account of political obligation in crisis situations

Kurzbeschreibung Forschungsthema

In this project, I investigate how Kant conceives of what we today call ‘political obligation’ and whether such an obligation can conflict with Kant’s notion of legal obligation in crisis situations such as revolutions or failed states.
In place of this ad hoc approach, this project revisits Kant’s account of political obligation to provide a contemporary Kantian account of its suspension in situations of crisis which includes parameters for the limits of political obligation. The aim is to provide a Kantian account which assigns limits to political obligation which are inherent to the account rather than arbitrarily imposed.

Fachrichtungen

Political philosophy, legal philosophy, history of philosophy, intellectual history

Forschungsschwerpunkte

My research broadly focuses on the relationship between political and legal philosophy and the history of political and legal thought. I intervene in contemporary discussions on legal and political philosophy from a Kantian standpoint informed by intellectual history.

Biografische Angaben

I work on legal and political philosophy in a Kantian framework. I studied philosophy and semiotics in Copenhagen, Berlin and Bologna and received my doctorate from the European University Institute in 2017. I have been a visiting research scholar at Brown University and a fellow of the Danish Academy in Rome. At the Cluster of Excellence, I am researching the conception of social progress in a Kantian framework and I have published with the European Journal of Political Theory and Kant Studien. I am author of the book "Kant’s Tribunal of Reason. Legal structures of the Critique of Pure Reason", which is forthcoming with Cambridge University Press.
