Michael Nitsch

Graduate Student in Government


Michael Nitsch

Nitsch's research interests lie in both ancient and modern political philosophy, as well as contemporary democratic theory. His dissertation uses the history of political thought to explain contemporary skepticism about judgments of character in democratic politics, and to develop a more sympathetic account of them. He has served as a teaching fellow for courses in political philosophy, the history of political thought, and American government; he also spent a year as a graduate fellow at the Safra Foundation Center for Ethics.
