León Heim is currently studying in the M. A. philosophy program at the University of Leipzig. Before, he completed his B.A. in philosophy in Leipzig with a thesis on Adornos critique of Kant’s practical philosophy. At the moment, he is preparing his M. A. thesis on the concept of family in Hegel’s theory of freedom.
His general field of philosophical interests varies from Critical Theory, Feminist Philosophy and German Idealism to Post-Analytic authors such as Robert Brandom, Martha Nussbaum and Christine Korsgaard. He is mainly interested in the concepts of (actualized) freedom, social normativity and questions of the self-constitutive character of rationality.
