Tvrtko’s dissertation – “The Metaphysics of Politics: Nietzsche and his Interlocutors” – seeks to reconceive the dominant Western image of politics beyond logocentrism and anthropocentrism, with the help of F. Nietzsche, M. Foucault, B. Latour, and the broader process philosophy.

At the Institute for Political Ecology, he researches theories of social change as part of the Horizon Europe project “Towards a Sustainable Wellbeing Economy.”
