Ben Morgan

Professor Ben Morgan (Worcester) is an Associate Professor in German in the Faculty of Modern Languages, and a Coordinator of the Oxford Comparative Criticism and Translation programme, for which he is organizing a cognitive humanities strand under the heading of ‘Cultures of Mind-Reading: The Novel and Other Minds’. Relevant publications include On becoming God: Late medieval mysticism and the modern Western self (Fordham 2013), which used a methodology informed by phenomenology and cognitive science to reassess approaches to the history of modern identity in the West; and ‘Some problems with the very idea of otherness’ Literature and Theology 25.4 (2011): 436-55, which used a discussion of Heidegger, Levinas and Middlemarch to re-think models of human interaction in the phenomenological tradition.
