Reidar Kiljan Maliks
Ph.D., Columbia University, 2008.
Reidar Maliks specializes in political philosophy and the history of political thought. Much of his work has been on, or inspired by, Immanuel Kant.
Prior to coming to the University of Oslo in 2011, Reidar Maliks was a Preceptor at Columbia (2005-6 and 2007-8), a Lecturer at Harvard (2008-9), and a Junior Research Fellow at Oriel College, Oxford (2009-11). At Oxford, he organized a lecture series called Transformations of the State; podcasts are available here.
Reidar has extensive experience teaching the history of philosophy – both ancient and modern – and has twice been awarded the Derek Bok Certificate of Distinction in Teaching at Harvard University.
He is the principal investigator of the project Kantian Foundations of Democracy, sponsored by a FRIPRO grant of The Research Council of Norway, during 2021-2024.
Kant and the French Revolution will be published by Cambridge University Press in the fall of 2021.
Reidar is married to Véronique Pouillard, who does interesting work in economic history.
