Michael Kim

Michael's interests in philosophy were formed from a strongly interdisciplinary background during his undergraduate education, which started at the University of Virginia but finished at CC (class of 2005), before graduate education at Villanova University. Michael is committed to a pluralistic approach to philosophy, both within philosophical methodologies as well as philosophy's relationship to other disciplines. His work is grounded in the history of philosophy but especially inspired by contemporary European philosophy. In addition to a dissertation titled "Image and Phenomenon: For a Critique of Appearance", he is also co-editing a project on Leibniz and contemporary philosophy.
