Malachi H. Hacohen

Fred W. Shaffer Associate Professor of History (2001 - 2006)

Professor Hacohen works in the field of Modern European intellectual history and uses Karl Popper’s work as his focus and his reference point for other issues. He’s written a massive monograph entitled Karl Poppe–The Formative Years 1902-1945. More than a life of Popper, the book demonstrates a wide-ranging engagement with the history of Austro Marxism and Central European socialism and various strands of nineteenth- and twentieth-century philosophy. Professor Hacohen won the Lublin Distinguished Teaching Award of 1996-97.
