Carmen Puchinger

PhD Candidate
Ethiek Instituut

I am a PhD Candidate in the socialphilosophical research project Theorizing Freedom from Below funded by a VIDI Grant from the Dutch Research Council (NWO) and led by Dr. Dorothea Gädeke.
My dissertational thesis is dedicated to a Critical theory of republican freedom focusing on the lived experience of (resisting) class-based domination.

My further research interests include Critical theories of the early Frankfurt School, feminist philosophy and criticism, as well as normative interpretations of body phenomenology targeting the lived experience of social imperatives within corporeality.
My various interests are united by the motivation to Critically particularize the epistemological universality claim of canonical political philosophy by including unheard voices.
