Bryan Garsten writes about the history of political thought and contemporary political theory, with a special interest in the themes of persuasion and rhetoric, political representation and judgment, and religion. His first book, Saving Persuasion: a defense of rhetoric and judgment (Harvard 2006), earned the Thomas J. Wilson Prize from Harvard University Press for the best manuscript in any field submitted by a first-time author. During the current academic year Garsten will teach courses on democratic rhetoric, representation, and the history of modern political thought.
