Part-time Assistant Professor of Philosophy

 

Richard A. Lynch teaches philosophy and women's studies at DePauw University.  He regularly teaches First Year Seminars (topics vary) and "Ethics and Business"; other recent courses have included "Introduction to Philosophy" and topics courses such as "Feminist Ethics" and "Foucault."  Prior to coming to DePauw, he taught at Boston College (where he earned his Ph.D.) and Wabash College. His current principal research projects focus on the ethics of care in feminist and Continental philosophical traditions, as well as connections between philosopher Michel Foucault and such thinkers as Simone de Beauvoir, Alexis de Tocqueville, and Paul Tillich. His first book, Foucault's Critical Ethics, will be published by Fordham University Press (expected in 2015); his translation of Isabelle Thomas-Fogiel's The Death of Philosophy : Reference and Self-Reference in Contemporary Thought appeared in 2011 (Columbia University Press). He has published scholarly articles on Hegel, Habermas, Bakhtin and others.
