Biography

BA University College Cork (Philosophy & English Literature)

MA University College Cork (Philosophy)

PhD Boston University (Philosophy) 

I worked in Universities and Research Institutes in Boston, Vienna and Dublin before taking up a lectureship at the University of Sussex. My work to date has largely been concerned with issues in phenomenology, in particular, the work of Martin Heidegger. I am just now finishing my third book on Heidegger which is due to appear in 2017. However, I am interested in the history of philosophy more broadly and am currently working on a number of papers on Plato as well as some of the central themes in twentieth century phenomenology.
