Ohad Reiss Sorokin

Visiting Predoctoral Fellow (Sep 2018-Nov 2018)

Princeton University, PhD candidate in History of Science

Ohad Reiss-Sorokin is a doctoral candidate in the history of science at Princeton University. Ohad’s dissertation project traces the story of the Geistkreis, an inter-war Viennese interdisciplinary intellectual circle. Ohad is interested in the history of twentieth-century philosophy in the German-speaking world, especially as it coincided with the history of economics and psychology. More broadly, Ohad is interested in the production and organization of knowledge in the humanities and human science, and is currently working also on Alfred Binet’s concept of intelligence as well as the coming together and breaking apart of the history- and philosophy of science at Princeton University in the 1960s and 1970s. Before coming to Princeton, Ohad graduated from the Interdisciplinary Program for Outstanding Students and earned his MA in philosophy in Tel-Aviv University, focusing on the production processes of philosophical knowledge.
