About Sean Murphy

I received my B.A. in Philosophy and Art History from the University of New Hampshire and my M.A. in Philosophy from University College Dublin. My interests are in German philosophy, ethics, and aesthetics. Among Germans, I think a lot about Kant, Schiller, Schopenhauer, and Nietzsche. I am writing a dissertation on Schopenhauer's accounts of self-government and personal autonomy.

Research interests 

19th century German philosophy, ethics (especially agency and moral psychology), and aesthetics
