Jason Cutmore has been awarded the Fulbright Research Grant, awarded to support his dissertation research at Tubingen University in Germany during the 2024-25 academic year. Jason is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Philosophy at Temple University with interests in ancient philosophy, aesthetics, philosophy of education, social/political philosophy and Continental philosophy. His dissertation work centers on the Bildung tradition. It aims to both reconstruct an account of classical Bildung—one that focuses on the governing role played by the ancient concept of Harmonia in Enlightenment and Romantic theories of self-realization—and to address contemporary debates concerning Bildung's relevance and potential today.
