John Warner

John Warner is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Kansas State University.  He received his Ph.D from the University of California-Davis in 2011.


He is a political theorist, and his research interests center on how politics structure experiences of intimacy.  He has published articles that track this broad theme in the Journal of Politics, History of Political Thought, and The Review of Politics, and has a forthcoming book on Jean-Jacques Rousseau (entitled Rousseau and the Problem of Human Relations) with Penn State University Press.     He is currently working on a book manuscript concerning the role of friendship in early modern political thought.

He has taught a number of courses, including American Political Thought, Constitutional Law, the Philosophy of Law, Modern Political Thought, Contemporary Political Thought, Eros and Politics, and Introduction to Political Theory.
