I did my M.A. thesis on Wittgenstein's conception of philosophy and how it could be understood, even for its bizarre therapeutic overtones, as fully participating in a more traditional notion of philosophy.

Since then, I have been interested in contemporary forms of French rationalism, in its speculative (Quentin Meillassoux), Wittgensteinian (via Jacques Bouveresse) or Pragmatist (Claudine Tiercelin) developments. This is part of a larger worry of mine regarding the resurgence of decomplexed religiosity after the ''postmodern critique'' of the notions of truth, rationality and the absolute.
