Nick Stang joined the Department in Fall 2014.   His primary research interests are metaphysics and its history (mainly in German philosophy).  His first book, Kant’s Modal Metaphysics, is under contract with Oxford University Press.  While most of his published work has been about Kant, he is increasingly interested in post-Kantian figures, especially Hegel and Heidegger.  He also works on contemporary metaphysics and aesthetics.  Side interests include: critical theory, early analytic philosophy, philosophy of mathematics, and Jewish philosophy.
