DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY

about

I work primarily on Immanuel Kant, Post-Kantian traditions (especially Phenomenology and Neo-Kantianism), and Aesthetics. I'm interested in the interrelations between perception, cognition, and aesthetics, as well as the pervasive role imagination plays in our lives.

 

My volume on Cassirer for the Routledge Philosophers Series will be available in Spring 2021 (Routledge; amazon).

I am currently at work on a systematic interpretation of Kant's theory of imagination.  I am also exploring the neglected work of the phenomenologist, Edith Landmann-Kalischer. And I am co-authoring the Geography of Taste (OUP) with Dominic McIver Lopes, Mohan Matthen, and Bence Nanay.

I am also participating in two projects oriented around rethinking the history of philosophy: Extending New Narratives and History of Women Philosophers and Scientists.
