VASFİ ONUR ÖZEN, August 2022, Omaha, NE


I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from

The University of Kansas in April 2022.

I have been a Visiting Lecturer of Philosophy at

The College of Saint Mary (August 1, 2022 - May 26, 2023).

I studied at various institutions for my undergraduate and Master’s degrees (B.Sc. in Economics with a concentration in Business and Economic Ethics from Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg, Germany;

B.A. & M.A. in Philosophy from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium).


I primarily work in moral psychology and

post-Kantian European philosophy, and I am especially interested in questions at their intersection.

I have strong research interests in political theory, economic systems, and the limiting and enabling aspects of social structures and cultures. 

Some of my interpretive projects deal with the 19th 

century German philosophical texts that respond to familiar issues within contemporary social and political philosophy.
