About myself



Curriculum Vitae


Announcing the Launching of a New Book Series:  Together with Prof. Gerald Hartung (Bergische Universität Wuppertal), I am co-editor of a new book series entitled

"New Studies in the History and Historiography of Philosophy." 

The first titles, to appear in 2015, are:

Vol. I:  From Hegel to Windelband:  Historiography of Philosophy in the 19th Century

Vol. II:  The Philosophy of Ernst Cassirer:  A Novel Assessment

New Book:  I am happy to report that I have finally finished editing The Neo-Kantian Reader (Routledge).  I have submitted the material and the press is working hard to publish the book in May 2015.  Thanks to all who are waiting for this Reader for their patience!

New Book:  Together with Maren Wehrle (Leuven), I am editing a volume from Metzler Verlag (Germany), entitled "Husserl - Leben - Werk - Wirkung."  Details forthcoming.


Upcoming Talks and Conferences:

February 18-21, 2015: APA Central in St. Louis:  Together with Fabien Capeilleres and Stephen Lofts, I am organizing a session for the International Cassirer Society.

Also at this meeting, in my capacity as "Research Ambassador" of the DAAD, I am organizing a session on "Contemporary Research in Germany."  The speakers from Germany are Ruth Hagengruber (Paderborn), Andreas Hüttemann (Cologne) and Anton Koch (Heidelberg).
