Assistant Professor of Philosophy Thimo Heisenberg
Thimo Heisenberg’s research focuses on German philosophy, social philosophy and political economy. At the moment, he works on two main projects: The first reconstructs a new model of social critique from Hegel’s Philosophy of Right, the second explores the often-neglected debate about the market economy in German philosophy 1800-1848 and draws from it lessons for the present. Since he strongly believes that teaching and research should go hand-in-hand, his teaching interests follow similar lines: he regularly offers classes on the history of modern European philosophy, on the philosophy of money and on morality and markets. You can find out more about him and his work here.
The Bryn Mawr Department of Philosophy introduces students to some of the most compelling responses, both historical and contemporary, to questions of human existence and knowledge.
