Dr Christopher John Müller Position: Honorary Research Fellow Email:

Location: John Percival Building, Colum Drive, Cathays, Cardiff


I completed my PhD Thesis ‘Shame and Technicity: Ethics after Heidegger’s Notion of Singularisation’ at the Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory in March 2013.

My research interests broadly speaking cover the fields of continental philosophy, critical and cultural theory, contemporary literature and drama. The main themes my current research addresses are: the intersection of bodily feeling and ethics; agency, emotion and literature; Anger and Rhetoric; Poststructuralist and 20th century German thought; the impact of technological change on human interaction and agency.
My current writing projects include: on-going work on shame and its role in the apprehension of others; the intersection of shame, literature and practices of reading; an article on Derrida, Heidegger and Hegel; a co-edited volume on capitalism and religion; and a project on Günther Anders’s revolutionary account of technology.
