Kate Withy, an associate professor of Philosophy at Georgetown University, specializes in the work of Martin Heidegger, but she also has interests in 20th-century European philosophy and ancient Greek philosophy.

Continental Philosophy Group Talk (Robert Stern, University of Sheffield)

Professor Robert Stern’s main interests in the history of philosophy are 19th-century post-Kantian German philosophy, especially Hegel. In contemporary philosophy, he focuses on epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, and political philosophy. His current work centres around the Danish philosopher and theologian K. E. Løgstrup, as well as around Martin Luther viewed from a philosophical perspective.

He has also published on Hegel, phenomenology (especially on Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger and Derrida) and ancient philosophy (especially Plato and Aristotle).
