Thomas Bailey

Thomas Bailey is a PhD candidate in the Government Department at the London School of Economics and Political Science and the recipient of a LSE Funded Studentship. He specializes in Kant's political philosophy, and maintains a wider interest in Kant’s moral philosophy and his philosophical method. He holds an MSc in Political Theory from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a BA (hons) in philosophy from Cambridge where he received his initial training in contemporary philosophy, political philosophy and political theory. He is now focused on the history of political thought and researching Kant’s political philosophy in the context of late eighteenth century political thought whilst also striving to retain what coherence it has with Kant’s philosophical system. His Doctoral thesis, supervised by Professor Katrin Flikschuh, is focused on the role of judgment in Kant's political philosophy and the implications this has for his broader system with the aim of situating this with the history of accounts of political judgment.  Alongside his research, Tom is a Teaching Assistant for courses on Ancient and Modern political thought and theory at the LSE Government department.
