2022 Richard Wollheim Lecturer

The American Society for Aesthetics and the British Society of Aesthetics are pleased to announce that Rachel Zuckert will be the Richard Wollheim Lecturer at the BSA Annual Conference at Oxford University, St Anne’s College, September 9-11, 2022.

Professor Zuckert is Professor of Philosophy at Northwestern University. Her research has concentrated on Kant and his philosophical context, broadly understood: both his eighteenth-century contemporaries, and post-Kantian, nineteenth-century philosophy. She has focused on themes in the Critique of Judgment, including issues in aesthetics, in the philosophy of biology, and relating to the possibility of empirical knowledge. She won the ASA Outstanding Monograph Prize in 2008 and again in 2020 for Kant on Beauty and Biology: An Interpretation of the Critique of Judgment (2008) and Herder’s Naturalist Aesthetics (2020) and is a former ASA Trustee (2014-17).
