I am an Assistant Professor in Political Science at Swarthmore College as well as one of the founding editors of The Point.

My first book project, Plato as Critical Theorist (HUP, 2018), argues for the notion of “philosopher-citizens” by way of Plato, Marx and Rawls; a second project will concern socialism. As a writer and editor for The Point, meanwhile, I have tried to carve out a space for the philosophical essay in the tradition of Montaigne. For an overview of the lunacy, here’s my CV.
