Christian J. Emden is Frances Moody Newman Professor, Professor of German Intellectual History and Political Thought, and Chair of the Department of Modern and Classical Literatures and Cultures at Rice University. He is also one of the directors of Rice’s Program in Politics, Law and Social Thought. His work falls into the field of modern German and European intellectual history with an emphasis on political thought. Within the wider context of modern intellectual history, Emden’s research is mainly concerned with varieties of political realism, especially as they focus on the relationship between active political citizenship and the demands of the modern state, and he is also interested in postnational manifestations of political citizenship. A second line of inquiry is concerned with the emergence of normativity and the conditions of normative order. This approach often links recent discussions in philosophical naturalism to central issues in political theory and the history of political thought.
