Alex Garnick is a PhD student in the Department of the History of Science at Harvard. He works mainly on the histories of mathematics and philosophy in early modern Europe.

In addition to his early modern pursuits, Alex maintains an interest in twentieth-century through contemporary French and German philosophy, particularly the work of Alain Badiou of late.
