Thursday, January 24, 2008

Dr. Jeremiah Alberg, associate professor of philosophy and interim chair of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of West Georgia, had a book published by Palgrave Macmillan titled “A Reinterpretation of Rousseau: A Religious System.”

Alberg’s book explores the theological philosophy of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and shows how Christianity can bring the coherence of Rousseau’s system and philosophy to light.

Alberg has taught at UWG since 2004 and at universities in the United States and Japan. His other publications include articles in International Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophical Studies, and Contagion: Journal of Violence, Mimesis and Culture.
