Orientation in the World
Philosophy to and from Kant with a research thesis that Kant’s aesthetics harbor a sensible account of intentionality.
Philosophically oriented to questions of mind, mood, intentionality, receptivity, language, and normativity for which a grounding in the large 19th century (Rousseau through Nietzsche) is a methodological advantage.
I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of South Dakota where I teach history of philosophy and value theory (ethics and aesthetics) as well as an Honors seminar on “Cynics and Spies”.
I received my PhD in 2012 from the New School for Social Research with the dissertation, “Orientation: Kant and the Aesthetic Content of Cognition”.
