Bio/Description

Jiseob Yoon is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Politics. She specializes in ancient Greek political thought and Athenian democracy. Her dissertation explores the role of law in Plato’s political philosophy: it shows how Plato’s idea of law, a relatively left unnoticed yet crucial aspect of Plato’s political philosophy, is in harmony with other parts of his thoughts that are more familiar to us and examines how Plato’s idea of law can be understood from the perspective of modern jurisprudence. Her research interests extend to the role of emotions in politics and the comparison between Classical Greek and Classical Chinese philosophy. Before coming to Princeton, Jiseob received her B.A. in Political Science and in Philosophy and M.A. in Political Science from Seoul National University.
