Arthur Willemse (A.A.)
Since February 2019 I teach in the Foundations and Methods of Law-group of the Maastricht Law Faculty. My book on Agamben and Derrida, The Motif of the Messianic, appeared in 2017. It was reviewd in Political Theology (https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/1462317X.2019.1676952), Reviews in Religion & Theology (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/rirt.13761) and The Heythrop Journal (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/heyj.13763?af=R). My research concerns the meaning of concepts from philosophical theology for political and legal thought.
In my spare time I review books for World Literature Today and The Millions, and the Dutch literature forum Literair Nederland.
My main academic expertise is in contemporary European philosophy, legal philosophy, political and philosophical theology, and literature.
Professional career history
I studied Law and Philosophy at the Radboud University Nijmege, before writing my doctoral thesis at the University of Sussex. At Sussex, I worked as a Philosophy tutor from 2011 to 2016.
