My research interests concern the connections between Husserlian phenomenology, psychoanalysis (Freudian and some contemporary), and continental thought on sensibility. The thematization of sensibility and alterity, as found in Levinas and Merleau-Ponty, in the formation of "I" and in some of sociality (notably that of Husserl on intersubjectivity) is the subject of current research.

I am also interested in Nietzsche's philosophy of forces in bodies, and his attempt to rethink European values. Finally, I am also interested in the distinctions between 19th-century rational psychology in German speaking cultures (Herbart, Brentano) and Revolutionary psychiatry in France (Pinel, Esquirol, and later, Charcot, among others).

My research mainly concerns the work of Kant, approached from a historical perspective. I am interested in both his theoretical philosophy (intuitive character of space, principle of causality, status of the thing in itself, theory of philosophical discourse) and his practical philosophy in the larger sense (moral experience, radical evil, international law). I am also looking at the contemporary reception of Kant’s thought (F. H. Jacobi and K. L. Reinhold) and the critical use of his views in German idealism, in particular by J. G. Fichte. The extensions of the Kantian approach in terms of historical epistemology are also one of my interests (H. Rickert and G. Simmel).
