Omar Bachour

Omar Bachour teaching

A spectre is haunting contemporary political philosophy—the spectre of community. The goal of Omar's project is to leverage the ideal of community away from its conservative and liberal recuperations and to situate it at the center of an emancipatory, egalitarian politics by reactualizing the concept of alienation in modern political theory. His other interests include the philosophy of sex and love and contemporary continental philosophy (Žižek and Badiou).
