Eero Arum

Personal Statement

I study the history of political thought, especially ancient, Renaissance, and early modern political philosophy. I have a longstanding interest in Machiavelli, especially in relation to the themes of political renewal and constitutional change. I am also broadly interested in the political philosophy of Aristotle, and in early modern theories of sovereignty and absolutism (esp. Bodin and Hobbes). Prior to beginning my graduate studies, I received my B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science from the University of Chicago (2018), then taught English as a second language through Fulbright Austria's USTA Program (2018-2020).
