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, paperback 2018) and In Praise of Failure. A Manifesto for Humility (forthcoming with Harvard University Press). I am currently at work on two new book projects: Against Conformity. Reinventing the Lost Art of Cynicism (under contract with Princeton University Press) and The Prince and the Hermit. A Study in Power and Nothingness (under contract with Penguin).
I also write essays, book reviews, and op-eds for such publications as the New York Times, Washington Post, The Globe & Mail, Boston Review, Aeon, Literary Review, Times Literary Supplement, Commonweal Magazine, and Times Higher Education. My work has been translated into many languages, including German, Greek, Dutch, Italian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Burmese, 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).
