Thesis Title: Nietzsche’s Political Economy – The aporias of industrial culture:

slavery, debt and the division of labour

Research Interests

Ontological and epistemological cross-sections in the study of modernity as shaped by capitalism’s impact on the human condition. I am particularly interested in researching the inter-disciplinary aspects of the broadly defined discourse on modernity as explored in the ‘timeless’ works of Marx, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Simmel, Weber, Schumpeter, Heidegger, Arendt, Cassirer and Wittgenstein.

Dmitri holds a M.Sc. from the London School of Economics and prior to matriculating at Cambridge, he spent over 20 years in the City of London, working for the leading global investment banking franchises.
