I’m very happy to announce that I’ve been awarded a Humboldt Fellowship for Experienced Researchers by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The Fellowship will allow me to spend 18 months at the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main, hosted by Christoph Menke and Marcus Willaschek. During that time, I’ll be working on a new monograph, currently titled Aesthetics & Logic: The Elements of Kant’s Critique, which explores the relationship between aesthetics and logic in German philosophy in the eighteenth century as well as the significance of that relationship for the Transcendental Aesthetic and Transcendental Logic in Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason.
Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews has just published a review by Samuel Fleischacker of the volume Kant and the Scottish Enlightenment (Routledge, 2018), edited by Elizabeth Robinson and Chris Suprenant, which includes my “Outer Sense, Inner Sense, and Feeling: Hutcheson and Kant on Aesthetic Pleasure.”
While Fleischacker is critical of some aspects of the volume, he praises the chapters by Michael Walschots, Wiebke Deimling and Oliver Sensen for their explorations of the proximity between Hutcheson and Kant on ethics, as well as the chapters by Robert Louden and Elizabeth Robinson about Hume’s influence on Kant’s anthropology He also says “Reed Winegar, J. Colin McQuillan and Paul Guyer give us a similarly varied and insightful set of pieces on elements of Kant’s aesthetics that echo or parallel themes in Hutcheson, Hume and Beattie.”
