Eliza Little

I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy. My academic work focuses primarily on post-Kantian European philosophy and I have particular interests in Kant, Hegel, French Existentialism, and aesthetics, broadly construed. My scholarship is driven by a commitment to practicing philosophy across disciplinary lines.

My current research focuses on Hegel’s views on thought and perception; de Beauvoir’s aesthetics and philosophy of mind; and the role of artworks (particularly works of contemporary fiction) in human life. You can read more about my work on my website.
