Research

I'm interested in the role played by the concept and the phenomena of ’society’ in contemporary and historical political thought. In particular, I'm interested in how thinkers in the 18th century anglophone conceived of the relationship between commercial or civil society, the politics of collective self rule, and the practice of political theory itself.
