Professor Sebastian Gardner

Research Interests

My earliest research interest, which materialised in my first book, was in the philosophy of psychoanalysis. Since then my work has concentrated chiefly on Kant and post-Kantian philosophy. I have written on Fichte, Schelling, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, and the aesthetic turn in post-Kantianism. A collection of papers that I co-edited with Matthew Grist, The Transcendental Turn (OUP), appeared this year. I am presently working on the legacy of Kant's Third Critique.

Teaching

The undergraduate and graduate courses that I teach are on classical German Philosophy (Kant, German Idealism) and on later figures and themes in C19 philosophy. I have recently given a research seminar on Kant's Critique of Judgement and have co-taught with Tom Stern another on Schopenhauer and Nietzsche.
