Nicholas Tampio is Associate Professor of Political Science at Fordham University. Tampio researches the legacy of the Enlightenment in contemporary politics and philosophy. His first book, Kantian Courage, considers how Anglo-American, Continental, and Islamic political theorists renovate Kant's critical philosophy. Tampio's second book, Deleuze's Political Vision, explains why Gilles Deleuze's masterpiece, A Thousand Plateaus, ought to enter the political theory canon. Tampio has published peer-reviewed articles in leading journals such as the Journal of Politics, Political Theory, and Politics & Religion, as well as op-eds in prominent outlets such as the Aeon, Huffington Post, and CNN. He is currently writing a book on democracy and national education standards. In 2017, he begins his term as political theory editor of Politics and Religion (Cambridge University Press).
