Bio

Peg was educated at Duquesne University. She teaches and conducts research in the areas of political thought, ethics, and feminist theory. She is particularly interested in modern and contemporary political thought, emphasizing the texts of Hobbes, Rousseau, Arendt, Heidegger, Kristeva, and Foucault. She has published in journals such as Research In Phenomenology, Hypatia and The Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal on topics that include radical evil, human rights, and the temporality of the political.

She is the author of Hannah Arendt and Human Rights (Indiana University Press, 2006) and co-editor (with Philippe van Haute) of Dissensus Communis: Between Ethics and Politics (Koros 1995). She is currently working on a manuscript tentatively titled "A Lying World Order: Deception as a Philosophical and Political Problem."
