Office: 206 Thornton
I work in both German and ancient Greek philosophy, focusing especially on Phenomenology, neo-Kantianism, and Plato. I received my B.A. from Haverford, and my Ph.D. in Philosophy from McGill University; from 1998 to 2000 I was a Fulbright Scholar at Heidelberg, where I studied both philosophy and classics. I come to Dartmouth having taught at The University of Memphis, Hamilton College, and Colgate University. My ancient interests include Plato’s theory of forms, the structure of dialectic, and Socratic ethics. My research in German thought deals with Heidegger, neo-Kantianism, and Phenomenology.
My book, Plato in Germany: Kant – Natorp – Heidegger (Academia Verlag) appeared in 2010; I have also published articles in Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy, Phronesis, Idealistic Studies, Internationale Zeitschrift für Philosophie, The Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Psychology, the Southern Journal for Philosophy, and the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. I am currently writing a chapter for the forthcoming volume, The Legacy of Neo-Kantianism (Cambridge), and an article in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, as well as editing the Companion to German Platonism (Brill).
