Before (re)joining the Toronto department in 2018, David was a Lecturer and SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow at UC Berkeley.

David’s research is aimed at understanding and rehabilitating post-Kantian philosophy in order to develop it today as a viable mode of philosophical inquiry. On the one hand, this involves scholarship in the history of philosophy focused on Kant, German Idealism and Romanticism, Neo-Kantianism, phenomenology, and existentialism; on the other hand, it involves the ongoing development of the insights contained in these post-Kantian traditions in the form of systematic philosophical methods and positions that can sustain contemporary scrutiny.

David talks a bit about his work in this interview with Into the Coast.
