DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY

about

I work primarily in the history of philosophy, focusing on Immanuel Kant and his influence on Post-Kantian traditions, especially Phenomenology and Neo-Kantianism.  Of special interest to me is how figures in these traditions conceive of the interrelations between perception and aesthetics.

 

My volume on Cassirer for the Routledge Philosophers Series is due to appear in 2019.

 

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.
