about

matherne, headshot, 2019 .jpg

I work primarily on Immanuel Kant, Post-Kantian traditions (especially Phenomenology and Neo-Kantianism), and Aesthetics. I'm interested in the relations 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 is now available (Routledge; amazon).

I am currently at work on a systematic interpretation of Kant's theory of imagination tentatively titled Seeing More: Kant's Theory of Imagination. I am also exploring the neglected work of the early 20th-century German philosopher, Edith Landmann-Kalischer and editing the first English translation of her work (translated by Daniel Dahlstrom, to appear in the Oxford New Histories of Philosophy Series). 

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