Michael Steinberg is an independent scholar and practicing attorney with a PhD in intellectual history from the University of Rochester. He is interested in the philosophical and social roots of modernity, its deep faultlines between personal and social worlds and mind and body, and the blind spots and structural crises that result. These figure in his work on science and religion as much as they do in his historical research, which centers on the philosophy of Johan Gottlieb Fichte and German idealism in general. He takes metaphysics seriously, but as a critique instead of as an alternative kind of science. He lives in Rochester, NY.
