I am an associate professor at the philosophy department at Bar-Ilan University, and a visiting member at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. I work on early modern philosophy, philosophy and history of biology, Wittgenstein’s philosophy, and multicultural theory (especially in the Israeli context).
I began studying philosophy and history of science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, then went to Columbia University for graduate school. I wrote my PhD thesis (A Leibnizian Approach to Possibility, 1998) under the supervision of Christia Mercer, Alan Gabbey, and Haim Gaifman. I also spent a year at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris conducting postdoctoral research on Leibniz and Spinoza with Pierre-François Moreau.
I have previously taught at Tel-Hai Academic College, Israel, Lehigh University, Fordham University, and been a visiting scholar at Princeton and the École Normale Supérieure in Lyon.
In the last few years, I have been concentrating on the connection between infinity and life in Leibniz’s philosophy, and am currently completing a book entitled Living Mirrors: Infinity, Unity, and Life in Leibniz’s Philosophy.
