I have a quite wide range of interests in the history of philosophy and philosophical theories. I endeavor both to achieve "historical understandings" of classical philosophical texts and to distinguish between what is dead and what is living in them. And I also aspire to reconcile between the real and the ideal, or between common sense, science, and speculation, with arguments that are as clear as possible.
