Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - Practical Philosophy, Philosophy of Law and Social Philosophy: Rahel Jaeggi

Eva von Redecker, Dr. des.

Eva von Redecker works at the chair for practical philosophy (social philosophy and the philosophy of law; Prof. Rahel Jaeggi) at Humboldt University Berlin.

Her research interests are situated at the intersection of critical theory and social philosophy with a particular focus on (post)structuralist and feminist approaches. Her primary topics are:

  • history, revolution and social change
  • social theory (esp. notions of practice, structure and power)
  • gender and sexuality; needs, care; feminist utopias and relationalities.
  • property and propertization

Eva has authored an introduction to the work of Judith Butler and a monography on Hannah Arendt's moral philosophy.

In her PhD she developed a theory of revolution as processual, interstitial transformation (entitled: "Metalepsis and Revolution. A performative practice theory of social change").

Eva studied Philosophy, History and Literature in Kiel, Tübingen, Cambridge, and Potsdam.
