I live in San Antonio with my husband and two children.
Ph.D. from University of Wisconsin-Madison
B.A. from Carleton College
I have translated works by Nietzsche and Schopenhauer for Cambridge University Press. I am currently co-editing the Cambridge Critical Guide to the World as Will and Representation.
My research has centered on the history of philosophy and in particularly 19th century German philosophy. I have written on Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Schlegel, Schelling and Marx. My current interest is in public philosophy. I run a program in Philosophy for Children and am helping start a program teaching in prisons.
