TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
CURRENT RESEARCH INTERESTS/PROJECTS
My background lies primarily in modern European philosophy, especially from Kant through the twentieth century, focusing on strands of contemporary Continental thought – phenomenology, existentialism, hermeneutics, and deconstruction. My principal research efforts are directed towards philosophical hermeneutics and the philosophy of art, particularly in light of the work of Martin Heidegger and Hans-Georg Gadamer.
