2023, Can art become theoretical?
I argue for a negative dialectical account of art-science, that also provides a novel defence of Adorno's aesthetic theory.

2021, That They Point Is All There Is to It’: Wittgenstein’s Romanticist Aesthetics
I argue that Wittgenstein's aesthetic writings must be understood as working through insights regarding ethical consciousness. In addition, I argue that this way of thinking provides extra evidence for the influence of Friedrich Schlegel on Wittgenstein.
