Special Interests
Curtis Sommerlatte specializes in the history of Western philosophy. His research focuses primarily on Kant and Early-Modern Philosophy, particularly concerning issues in epistemology and philosophy of mind. He also has active research side-projects on other historical figures, e.g., Plato and Sartre. More generally, his work is directed at questions concerning the natures of consciousness, self-consciousness, normativity, and imagination. Ultimately, however, he aims to understand how addressing these issues might contribute to understanding better human freedom and autonomy.
