In addition to his activities as editor, James M. Thompson is active in the research focus area Translation and the Ph.D. mentoring program here at the MPI. Furthermore, he is senior research fellow at the Research Cluster: Society and Culture in Motion (University of Halle-Wittenberg). From 2011-15, he was guest professor at the K.U. Leuven, where he is working together with Stefan Rummens and Benjamin De Mesel to establish a research concentration on Wittgenstein – above all, focusing on the relevance of his though for moral philosophy. Furthermore, he has taught and researched at the University of Zürich, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and is currently lecturing at the University of Frankfurt. In addition to a number of articles on Wittgenstein, he is author of Wittgenstein on Phenomenology and Experience (2008), co-editor of Wittgenstein and Ancient Thought (2012), and co-editor of Wittgensteinian Approaches to Moral Philosophy (2015). His current research includes working out the connections between Wittgenstein, pragmatism, phenomenology, and their role in the development of practice-oriented approaches in the humanities. Moreover, he is working on normativity and its emergence within the field of moral thought, above all, with regard to human rights.
