Jordan Daniels

I defended my dissertation, Figurations of Nature in Kant and Adorno, on October 14, 2020, in the philosophy department at Emory University in Atlanta.

My research and teaching interests include environmental philosophy, continental philosophy (especially Critical Theory), Kant, aesthetics, and feminist philosophy.

Recently, I have been writing about natural beauty, both on its role in the history of philosophy, as well as on what kinds of aesthetic experiences of nature are available to us in our historical present. See my piece that challenges the perception of nature as righteous comeuppance for human hubris (i.e., “We are the virus”) in “Dolphins in Venice: On Nature, Revenge, and Beauty,”  https://www.philosophy-world-democracy.org/dolphins-in-venice.
