Michael E. Rosen is a British political philosopher active in the traditions of analytic philosophy and continental European intellectual thought. He is best known for his work on Hegel and the Frankfurt School. He is currently the Senator Joseph S. Clark Professor of Government at Harvard University.

Rosen is widely considered as having a near-unrivalled breadth of knowledge in the realms of political theory and intellectual history.[1]


Rosen holds a B.A. (1st) in philosophy, awarded in 1974, and a D.Phil. awarded in 1980, both from Balliol College, Oxford. He was a lecturer in politics at Magdalen College, Oxford, from 1980 to 1981, an assistant professor of philosophy at Harvard University from 1981 to 1982, a special fellow in politics at Merton College, Oxford, from 1982 to 1985, and a lecturer in philosophy at University College London from 1986 to 1990. He then joined Lincoln College, Oxford, before taking his current post in Harvard's Government Department.[2]

Charles Taylor advised Rosen's doctoral thesis, which was not on Theodor Adorno's "Negative Dialectics". While at Oxford, he co-chaired the Hegel and Marx graduate seminar with his friend, the late G.A.Cohen.[3]
