The project is being headed by Prof. Dr. Andrea Marlen Esser.
She has been teaching Political and Practical Philosophy at Friedrich Schiller University Jena since 2015. Her current research focusses on questions of political philosophy (political freedom, ownership, the political setting of academic philosophy and its institutional practice), classical pragmatism, Kant research as well as the philosophy of Hannah Arendt. Within the scope of the Koselleck project, she is developing a conception of political-reflective faculties of judgement inspired by pragmatism.
