Before joining the NYU faculty, I taught at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Pittsburgh. I enjoy teaching a variety of different classes. At the undergradute level, my previous classes include: Introduction to Philosophy; Honors Introduction to Philosophy; Honors Humanities Seminar I, from the Greeks to the Renaissance; Honors Humanities Seminar II, from the Renaissance to the Present; A Brief History of Space, Time, and Motion; History of Modern Philosophy; Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art; Kant, Critique of Pure Reason; Rationalism (Descartes, Malebranche, Spinoza, Leibniz). At the graduate level, I have offered the following seminars: History of the Philosophy of Science; Kant’s Philosophy of the Supersensible; Kant’s Early Critics; Kant and the Exact Sciences; Locke and Leibniz; Schopenhauer; Kant’s Critique of Judgment (directed study); Nietzsche (directed study).
