I specialize in 19th and 20th century continental philosophy, social and political philosophy, and postcolonial theory. For a May Term on “the roots of Otherness in philosophy,” I traveled with students to my home country of Turkey. I published Madness and Death in Philosophy in 2005 and Decolonization of Democracy in 2015.
