Caitlin is a PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto who also is part of the collaborative program with the Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies. She is particularly interested in intersubjectivity, our ability to distinguish persons from non-persons (e.g., non-human animals and mere objects), and in the effect being with others has on one’s awareness and self-consciousness. Caitlin’s dissertation focuses on these question in Kant’s system, more specifically, on how the concept person, an idea of practical reason,  can be applied to objects given in experience. Caitlin has further interests in German idealism more widely,  Jewish thought, philosophy of religion, Africana social and political philosophy, and the philosophy of race.
