I am the Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Lebanese American University.

My current research argues against criteria of legitimacy that are meant to limit what kind of disagreements should be considered significant. To do so is to exclude any real disagreement. When disagreements sprawl to the basic assumptions and perspectives separating our views, these should be debated as well.

I received my PhD from the University of Sussex in 2016. My thesis, “Husserl and Derrida — The Origins of History,” was written under the supervision of Professor Tanja Staehler and examined by Professor Leonard Lawlor and Dr. Paul Davies.

I have taught philosophy at the University of Sussex and University College London, I blog and podcast at, I am a regular speaker at Stand-Up Philosophy, and I am an editor at Philosophy is Awesome.
