New Publication by Dr David James: Property and its Forms in Classical German Philosophy, published by Cambridge University Press (2023)

In this new monograph, Dr David James explores the theories of property developed by four key philosophers in the German philosophical tradition: Kant, Fichte, Hegel and Marx. While these philosophers advance different theories of the nature of property and the rights that follow from it, all of them acknowledge the importance of social recognition for the question of what specific forms of property should exist in a society that is genuinely committed to the idea of freedom.

The theme of property and ownership is closely linked to many divisive social and political issues of today. In this book, Dr James analyses the nature and meaning of property and arguments for specific forms of property in such a way as to demonstrate their continuing relevance.

Professor Quassim Cassam Visits NYU Abu Dhabi as Distinguished Philosopher-in-Residence

Professor Quassim Cassam spent 7-11 November at NYU Abu Dhabi, visiting as their Distinguished Philosopher-in-Residence 2022. The university, which supports almost 3000 international undergraduate students, was built almost a decade ago and is located on a beautifully landscaped campus on Saadiyat Island, close to the spectacular Abu Dhabi Louvre. See here: Events - NYU Abu Dhabi

 Professor Cassam says: “In my five days in Abu Dhabi, I participated in two research seminars on my work, two undergraduate classes on my book on Conspiracy Theories, and gave a public lecture on Extremism.

I also got to spend a day dune bashing in the desert (that is, driven up and down sand dunes at high speed). Silly but fun! The day in the desert ended with a climb (on foot!) up a steep dune to look at the sunset and dinner at a desert camp, with a belly dancer in attendance”.

Philosophy Department Graduate Adam Neal Becomes an IAS Fellow

Congratulations to Adam Neal, a graduate of the Department of Philosophy, who has been awarded a prestigious Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) Fellowship for 2022/23. Adam says:

“I’m really excited to be joining the IAS. Over the next year I’m looking forward to developing my research portfolio through preparing my PhD research for publications and organising an interdisciplinary workshop (around April 2023) which seeks to explore the nature of sociability, particularly focussing on sociability in the context of work and education. I’m currently organising 2 online book launch events for my co-edited collection (along with Kimberley Brownlee and David Jenkins, see link below), due to take place on 2nd December and 15th December. Additionally, I’m hoping to get involved in the Editorial Board of the Exchanges journal and to develop new interdisciplinary research networks.”
