Kathy Kiloh

I am a philosopher interested in the intersections between political thought, ethics, and aesthetics. I am particularly interested of aesthetics as a modernizing and Eurocentric philosophy deeply concerned with the moral regulation of the individual and the maintenance of political order. My current research considers the ways in which philosophers have used the discourse of aesthetics to promote various ideological positions, and to buttress their ethical theories. I am working on a manuscript concerning the relationship between ethics and aesthetics in the work of T.W.
