Additional Information

Moishe Postone’s research and teaching focus on 19th and 20th century European intellectual history, with an emphasis on critical social theories. He is particularly interested in self-reflexive theories of historical context—theories that seek to grasp social, economic and cultural processes in ways that illuminate the relation of such processes to the theories themselves. His work also focuses on the problem of modern anti-Semitism and questions of history, memory and identity in postwar Germany, as well as on the issue of the global transformations of the past three decades and their implications for understanding the historical trajectory of the 20th century.
