Hans Sluga

William and Trudy Ausfahl Professor of Philosophy

Hans Sluga is the William and Trudy Ausfahl Professor of Philosophy at UC Berkeley. Professor Sluga was educated at the Universities of Bonn, Munich, and Oxford and has also been a lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at University College London. Professor Sluga labels his philosophical interests as being both systematic and historical and focuses on the crossing of boundaries between “analytic” and “continental” philosophy with a historical emphasis. Professor Sluga studies issues in the philosophy of logic, the theory of meaning, and epistemology, drawing from political philosophy and what he calls “the diagnostic tradition in political philosophy,” extending from Marx and Nietzsche to Carl Schmitt, Hannah Arendt, and Michel Foucault. He is also interested in applying Wittgenstein’s lessons to political philosophy.
