Matthias Fritsch is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Concordia University in Montréal. He studied philosophy and literature in Cologne, New York, Berlin, and Philadelphia. His research in social and political philosophy focuses on historical justice, theories of democracy, and the critical theory of society. To date he has published The Promise of Memory: History and Politics in Marx, Benjamin, and Derrida (SUNY Press, 2005), co-edited Reason and Emancipation: Essays in Honour of Kai Nielsen (with Michel Seymour; Humanity Books, 2007), published a range of articles in scholarly journals, and translated authors such as Heidegger, Gadamer, and Habermas into English.
