Scholar of the Week
Markus Kohl, assistant professor of philosophy, works in the history of philosophy, with special attention to central issues of metaphysics, epistemology and ethics within the work of Kant and Aristotle. Over the last eighteen months he has placed four research articles on Kant in highly selective top-tier journals:
- “Kant on Determinism and the Categorical Imperative.” Forthcoming in Ethics.
- “Kant on Freedom, Idealism, and Standpoints.” Forthcoming in Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie
- “Kant on Freedom of Empirical Thought.” Forthcoming in Journal of the History of Philosophy
- “Transcendental and Practical Freedom in the Critique of Pure Reason.” Forthcoming in Kant-Studien
Kohl will be teaching a graduate seminar on Kant this fall which will host three of the most distinguished Kant scholars in North America: Patricia Kitcher (Columbia), Stephen Engstrom (Pittsburgh) and Karl Ameriks (Notre Dame). Kohl is quickly establishing himself as one of the most promising next generation philosophers working in the history of philosophy and on Kant in particular.
