Welcome Katharina Kraus!

The Department warmly welcomes Katharina Kraus as Miller Associate Professor of Philosophy. Katharina specializes in the history of modern philosophy, focusing especially on Immanuel Kant as well as on other thinkers of the European Enlightenment (e.g., John Locke and Gottfried W. Leibniz). More recently, she has begun to explore selected post-Kantian traditions of thought from the 19th and 20th centuries, especially Dilthey’s philosophy of life, Gadamer’s hermeneutics, and the phenomenology of Edith Stein. She also has interests in the philosophical works of Lou Andreas-Salomé.
