Graduate, Graduate School of Education
BioI am a Ph.D. student at the University of Vienna (Department of Education), currently visiting Stanford as a Visiting Student Researcher to work on my dissertation.
Broadly speaking, I am interested in the question "What happened to the (religious) idea of the soul during the Enlightenment?". Many twisted and tangled stories lie behind this question, shaped by specific national and religious contexts, unintended trajectories, and forgotten conflicts. And these stories are not simply a matter of the past: The disputes over the soul gave rise to specialized academic disciplines, such as psychology, psychiatry, and psychoanalysis, which are still part of today's research landscape and shape how we reason about subjectivity, the self, and education. My Ph.D. thesis tells one of these stories, namely the story of the fate 'the soul' met in the notoriously - or allegedly? - antireligious French Enlightenment.
