Eden’s interests are unified by the desire to construct a systematically coherent metaphysical anthropology. That is, their overriding concern is what it means to be human, and how we see ourselves in relation to the rest of the universe. To that end, Eden’s current projects concern the historical development of and relationship between metaphysical systems and models of God, the constitutive role of intersubjectivity in human mental life, and the narrative conception of self.
