Nadeem Hussain (Department of Philosophy)


Member of Academic Council

Associate Professor of Philosophy and, by courtesy, of German Studies

I specialise in metaethics, the philosophy of action, and the history of nineteenth-century German philosophy. I am currently investigating contemporary criticisms of mainstream analytical metaethics and philosophy of action that draw their inspiration from the Kantian tradition. My hope is that a book will emerge from this. Meanwhile I continue to work on assessing different interpretations of Nietzsche views about metaethics and the nature of agency.
