M.Phil. 18th Century British Literature, Cambridge University
Steven Lydon completed his B.A. in English Literature and German at Trinity College Dublin, and an M.Phil. on 18th Century British Literature at Cambridge University. Currently he is a doctoral student in German Studies at Harvard University, though he is based in Frankfurt for 2014/15. His research interests lie in the relationship between art, philosophy and science, especially via the lens of Marx and Adorno. His dissertation focuses on the hammer in early twentieth century German thought, or how it represents an intellectual division of labour for the tradition of philosophical anthropology, broadly conceived. Nietzsche, Gehlen and Heidegger figure prominently.
