Biography


Spenser Rapone is a graduate student of modern Arab intellectual history. He is broadly interested in Arab thought as it pertains to decolonization, political metaphysics, consciousness, subjectivity, and temporality in the twentieth century Arab Middle East. His research is primarily concerned with the question of the spirit and soul in modern thought. Specifically, he seeks to reconstruct and historically situate politico-theological ideologies such as Baʿthism and similar thought-forms in the Arab World and beyond.
