Areas of Concentration

Recent French thought, existentialism, Nietzsche

 

David Allison's research interests focus on two principal projects - one examining the widespread and disturbing psychological disorder, Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome, and a series of studies on the major works of Friedrich Nietzsche. Future research plans include the ongoing editing of the New Nietzsche Studies series, of which Allison is the co-editor, the composing of a second volume of his Nietzsche book, Reading the New Nietzsche (first volume published in August 2000), and the completion of his study on Descartes. This publication will be a commentary on Descartes' Discourse on Method and the Meditations. Allison is a member of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy, the Nietzsche Society, the North American Nietzsche Society, and the Society for Philosophy and Literature among others. He is also the co-author of Disordered Mother or Disordered Diagnosis: Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome (Analytic Press, 1998). Allison has published articles in the Journal of Existential Psychology and Psychiatry, The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy, and The New York Times Book Review, among others.
