Gäste am Lehrstuhl für Theoretische Philosophie
Dr. Gerad Gentry is an Alexander von Humboldt Faculty Fellow at the Universität-Potsdam and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin working on Kant and Hegel. His current research focus is on conceptions of purposiveness in (i) the emergent method of Hegel’s logic, (ii) epistemic necessity, (iii) ethical normativity, and (iv) aesthetic formation; as well as purposiveness as a unifying thread to Kant’s third Critique (aesthetic and teleological powers of judgment).
Dr. Fabio Gironi joined Potsdam University in February 2018 as a Humboldt Fellow. His project pertains to the history of american philosophy, and in particular the personal and philosophical relationship between Roy Wood Sellars (1880-1973) and his son Wilfrid Sellars (1912-1989), as well as the philosophical movements of New Realism and Critical Realism, which influenced Roy Wood Sellars' work. Dr. Gironi has also worked on contemporary realist movements, and the philosophy of science.
