My work focuses mainly on 19th and 20th century European philosophy. My first book was on Heidegger and the question of authenticity. (Heidegger and Authenticity: From Resoluteness to Releasement. London & New York: Continuum, 2011. ). My second book offers a new approach to the Heidegger Controversy and, in particular, examines the notion of an authentic historical community in Heidegger’s thought. (Heidegger, History and the Holocaust. Bloomsbury, London & New York, 2015.
