Florian Grosser (Dr. phil., Ludwig-Maximilian University Munich) teaches philosophy in Visual Studies and Visual & Critical Studies at California College of the Arts and, as Visiting Associate Professor, at UC Berkeley’s Department of Philosophy. His main interests lie in contemporary political and social philosophy, continental philosophy (esp., critical theory and phenomenology), and philosophy of art. He is the author of Revolution denken: Heidegger und das Politische 1919-1969 (C.H. Beck, 2011) and Theorien der Revolution (Junius, 2013; revised 2nd edition forthcoming; for a short English version, see https://www.iep.utm.edu/pol-rev/). His work has been published in, inter alia, Social Philosophy Today, Continental Philosophy Review, Journal of the Pacific Association for the Continental Tradition, diacritics, Débordements, and Süddeutsche Zeitung. He currently works on a research project that, based on a politico-phenomenological analysis of community formation, seeks to reconceive democratic coexistence in light and under conditions of migration.
