Our research

Our department is characterized by a commitment to integrating serious work in the history of philosophy with work on issues of contemporary philosophy. We work consistently across different subfields in philosophy. Our overlapping research interests fit together in ways that are intellectually stimulating, and the integration of work on the history of philosophy and contemporary philosophy strengthens and enriches our coverage of the core areas of philosophy. 

Faculty frequently collaborate with one another and with graduate students. We maintain interdisciplinary connections with Computer Science, Cognitive Science, Gender Studies, Germanic Studies, Informatics, Linguistics, History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine, Mathematics, Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, Political Science, Religious Studies, and the Maurer School of Law, among other disciplines.
