Curriculum Vitae:


Lucas Scott Wright is a MA student in the department of Religious Studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara and incoming PhD student in German Studies. His current research focuses generally on modern Jewish thought and European history, thought, and culture – particularly 19th and 20th century Europe in relation to contemporary trends in continental philosophy and medieval and renaissance mysticism. His master’s thesis – entitled Broken Mirrors, Distorted Reflections: Anthropomorphism and the Recovery of the Concrétude of Human Being in Rosenzweig, Heidegger, and Adorno – examines divergences vis-à-vis the concept of anthropomorphism amongst three thinkers otherwise collectively known for, amongst other things, tarrying with the finitude of human being in contrast to certain reductive tendencies of Deutscher Idealismus.
