Dino Jakušić

I am an Associate Tutor in Philosophy at the University of Warwick. Broadly speaking, my work traces the historical and philosophical developments of the systems of metaphysics in European philosophy, specifically in the Early-Modern period and German Idealism. I focus particularly on the work of Christian Wolff, Immanuel Kant, and G.W.F. Hegel, and the interrelation that can be found between their metaphysical systems.

At the moment, I am writing an article on Kant's formulation of the Ontological Proof, as well as a chapter on Wolff's primary philosophy for a collected volume.

Dino's portrait

Most of my work can be found on my Academia page.

The proper surname pronunciation is [jâkuʃitɕ], although I do not mind. The first name, however, sounds like 'deano', never as 'dine-o'. You can also check the recording below.
