I am a Professor of Humanities in the Honors College at Texas Tech University and an Honorary Research Professor of Philosophy at the University of Queensland, Australia. I have also held faculty appointments at Cornell University, University of Notre Dame, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Miami University, and Arizona State University, as well as at universities in Europe, South America, and Asia.
I work on topics in the history of philosophy, Continental philosophy, philosophy of religion, philosophy of literature and of film. I am the author or editor (co-editor) of several books, among which Dying for Ideas. The dangerous Lives of the Philosophers (Bloomsbury, 2015). I am currently working on two new book projects: In Praise of Failure. A Manifesto for Humility (under contract with Harvard University Press) & Against Conformity. Reinventing the Lost Art of Cynicism (under contract with Princeton University Press).
I also write essays, book reviews, and op-eds for such publications as the New York Times, Washington Post, The Globe & Mail, The New Statesman, Aeon, Dissent, Literary Review, Times Literary Supplement, and Times Higher Education. My work has been translated into a number of languages, including German, Dutch, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Farsi.
I am religion/comparative studies editor for the Los Angeles Review of Books, as well as the founding editor and curator of two book series: "Philosophical Filmmakers" (Bloomsbury) and "No Limits" (Columbia University Press).
