Mehmet Tabak holds two BA degrees in political science and history from University of California, Berkeley, and a PhD in Political Science from Columbia University. He has been teaching at NYU since 2007. He believes that interdisciplinary thinking and research can benefit political science, and, for this reason, includes philosophy among his research interests. His most recent publications are: Plato’s Parmenides Reconsidered (Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming in 2015); Dialectic in Hegel’s History of Philosophy, Vol. 1 (Pranga, 2013); Dialectics of Human Nature in Marx’s Philosophy (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012).
