Research

Dr Bubbio's research is mainly in the area of post-Kantian philosophy. In particular he is interested in the relationship of the post-Kantian tradition (from Kant to Nietzsche) to the later movements of European philosophy, such as existentialism and hermeneutics, and in issues in philosophy of religion. He is presently working on a research project on the notion of the 'I' in Hegel and Heidegger. He also has an ongoing interest in Rene Girard's mimetic theory.

Dr Bubbio is currently available for supervision of MA and PhD students. Dr Bubbio's research and supervision interests include: German idealism (particularly Hegel), Nietzsche studies, Existentialism and Hermeneutics (particularly Heidegger), Philosophy of Religion, and René Girard's mimetic theory.
