Carolyn Shapiro


B.A. (St. Thomas, Fredericton), M.A. (Toronto)


My research interests lie predominantly in the fields of continental philosophy and political philosophy. Thus far, my scholarship has prioritized the work of Kant, Hegel, Marx and Heidegger, although I have a competing passion for 20th Century French philosophy. I wrote an undergraduate thesis at St. Thomas University in Fredericton, NB on the relationship between praxis and human plurality in Heidegger and Arendt, which stimulated my fascination with questions concerning the meaning of the political, alterity and the nature of human freedom.
