Since 2018, Tobias is a permanent research fellow at the Centre of Advanced Studies “Justitia Amplificata” at Goethe-University in Frankfurt. He is a co-editor of the Theorieblog.
Tobias is generally interested in Political Theory and Social Philosophy. He has a particular interest in the political thinking of Hannah Arendt, (early and late) critical theory as well as methodologies of political theory-formation and the history of political thought. He is currently working on a PhD thesis in which he tries to bring the political thought of Hannah Arendt into a productive dialogue with the critical theory of Adorno.
