BA (American University)
Joseph is interested in the German philosophical tradition from the late eighteenth century to the present day, with special attention paid to Immanuel Kant and Martin Heidegger’s works. In this period he focuses on the themes of religion and secularization, normativity, politics and aesthetics, all in the service of fleshing out the role of rationality vis-à-vis our emotional and aesthetic faculties in leading a meaningful life in a secular age. He is also interested in encounters between Liberal political philosophy and Marxist and Feminist thought. Finally Joseph is interested in philosophical conversations surrounding LGBT lives.
Joseph received a B.A. in Philosophy from American University in Washington, DC in 2010. During that time he spent a year as a visiting student at Oxford University. Before coming to Georgetown, Joseph spent a year working as a paralegal at a whistleblower protection and civil rights law firm in Washington, DC, nodding concernedly at what sounded like important legal jargon and desperately trying not to mess everything up. He continues to do freelance blogging for the firm from time to time, writing on developments in whistleblower, discrimination, and labor law.
