Philosophy

Dept profile picI am Andrew Dunstall, a philosopher based in Sydney, Australia at Macquarie University.

I completed my PhD in 2013  at Macquarie, with a dissertation on the philosophy of history in Jacques Derrida’s early period.

I research in social and political philosophy, and 19-20th Century European philosophy, specializing in phenomenology. My current projects are on the concept of historicity, and the political structure of education systems. I have published on phenomenology, post-structuralism, Hegel, and Frankfurt School critical theory.

Recent teaching has included units on contemporary political philosophy, 19th C. German philosophy (Kant to Nietzsche), and the philosophy of religion (Descartes to Charles Taylor).
