PhD Fellow, PhD Student

Magnus Møller Ziegler


I work with German philosophy in the 19th century and more specifically the reception of Hegel, especially the Young Hegelians, but also the political and institutional reception of Hegel in a socio-economic and political context. My PhD project is about the relationship between Marx's Capital and his status as a Young Hegelian.

I am also a member of the editorial board for the Danish journal for the history of ideas Slagmark, where I have edited vol. 77 on Marx (forthcoming). Further, I am a member of the executive board of the Society for Marxist Studies, a Danish academic society which aims to further research about and inspired by Marx and Marxism in Denmark, and which also organises the yearly conference Marx Nu! ("Marx Now!").

Areas of specialisation: G. W. F. Hegel, Hegelianism, and the contemporary reception of Hegel; German Idealism; Karl Marx; Friedrich Engels; the intellectual history of Marxism, circa 1850-1970.

Other areas of competence/interest: Philosophy of science, especially the social sciences; philosophy of history and history of philosophy; German 19th century philosophy in general; the Frankfurt School (1st generation) and Critical Theory; ancient philosophy, mainly Aristotle; "classical" political philosophy (from Plato to Marx); the institutionalisation of systems of thought.
