Arsalan is primarily interested in Kant’s transcendental philosophy, 19th- and 20th-century continental philosophy (especially phenomenology and in particular, Husserl and Merleau-Ponty), aesthetics, and ethics. In Fall of 2009, Arsalan taught PHIL 1101: Fundamental Issues/Philosophy (Introduction to Philosophy) and currently (Spring 2010), Arsalan is teaching PHIL 1102: Values in the Modern World (Ethics, Social and Political Thought, and Aesthetics). In Fall of 2010, Arsalan will be teaching PHIL 1101: Fundamental Issues/Philosophy (Metaphysics and Epistemology). At present, he is working on his dissertation on Kant, Husserl, and Merleau-Ponty.

Arsalan also co-coordinates the Merleau-Ponty Reading Group (with Prof. Bryan Smith). The Group, which is now reading Merleau-Ponty’s Humanism and Terror: The Communist Problem, meets every other Thursday (Feb 11, Feb 25, etc.).
