Fung Global Fellow - Fall 2017

Fung Global Fellows Program

Louis A. Simpson International Building, Office 163B

Van Tuinen was a Fung Global Fellow in Fall of 2017.  He is currently an associate professor in philosophy at Erasmus University in the Netherlands. He received a Ph.D. in philosophy from Ghent University in Belgium. At his home university, he coordinates the Centre for Art and Philosophy and is a co-founder of the Erasmus Institute for Public Knowledge, where he is responsible for a project on European politics of debt and austerity. In his project at Princeton, titled “Ressentiment: Pedagogy of a Concept,” van Tuinen worked to disentangle what he called the “resentment-ressentiment complex,” or the confusion of authentic indignation with passive aggression in current political discourse. He is the editor of numerous books, including “Deleuze and The Fold. A Critical Reader” (2010), “De nieuwe Franse filosofie” (2011), “Speculative Art Histories” (2017) and ” The Polemics of Ressentiment”  (forthcoming). He is the author of “Sloterdijk. Binnenstebuiten denken” (2004).
