Chase De Saint Felix
Department of Philosophy and Religion
- Chase de Saint-Félix is a southerner at heart, having spent most of his life in Arkansas and Tennessee. While in Memphis, he received his BA in Religion and Philosophy from Christian Brothers University, where he focused on issues of gender and sexuality. More recently, he graduated from American’s MA program in Philosophy and Social Policy, where his interests broadened to encompass a range of Political and Ethical concerns. Together with his background in religion, they form the three pillars of his current scholarly focus: Politics, Ethics, and Western Religions. In his writing, Chase is just finishing up a small project exploring the relationship between “critique” and “enlightenment” in both Kant and Foucault, mapping these terms against the ethical concerns of the authors. His next project involves a three-way comparison between the work of Simone de Beauvoir, Hannah Arendt, and the early church father Origen, all on the topic of ethics and violence. To maintain his sanity, Chase also reads mystery novels in his spare time.
