Continental Philosophy

The Department of Philosophy features a significant strength in continental European philosophy. Within this area, our faculty is distinguished by expertise in Kant, German Idealism and Romanticism, and major figures in nineteenth-century philosophy, as well as by philosophical movements of phenomenology, existentialism and hermeneutics, critical theory, poststructuralism, and feminist theory. Faculty research interests emphasize continental approaches in ethics, social and political philosophy, and aesthetics, focusing on some of the most pressing social justice and cultural issues of our age. Our work also focuses on dialogues, and tensions, between research in continental philosophy and in philosophies of the global south, Latin American philosophy, and Africana philosophy.
