Antong Liu

Antong Liu is a Ph.D. candidate in Political Theory. He is also specialized in Religion and Politics and takes interest in the study of comparative political thought. He works on the modern history of political thought, with a focus on political passion and ethics. His dissertation explores the way in which several prominent thinkers of the 18th century who laid the theoretical foundation for modern society (Smith, Rousseau, and Kant, in particular) transformed the seemingly quixotic sense of honor into an incentive for modern individuals to stand up to disrespect and injustice without deviating from moral principles.
