Kiasha Naidoo

Fellow: Department of Philosophy, Honours

Kiasha holds a BA in Political Science, Philosophy and Economics (PPE) from the University of Stellenbosch and is currently pursuing an honours degree in Philosophy at the University of the Western Cape, where she is also a Fellow of the Centre for Humanities Research (CHR). Kiasha has a broad range of interests relating to issues in political and social philosophy. She is particularly interested in assessing our understanding of concepts such as ‘justice’, ‘freedom’ and ‘equality’ as they are used in politico-economic texts. This is in order to rethink and reorient these concepts while considering the (con)textual features in which they are enshrouded.
