Timothy Stoll


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy. My research focuses on post-Kantian German philosophy, with a particular emphasis on Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Schiller and German Romanticism. At present, I am especially interested in questions of aesthetics and knowledge as they surface in the work of these figures. I teach classes on Kant’s ethics, Nietzsche, and a variety of other themes in German and French continental philosophy.
