'Rafts, Boats, and Cruise Ships'
cum laude at our faculty, has won two research fellowships: a Kristeller-Popkin Fellowship from the Journal of the History of Philosophy and a Rodney G. Dennis Fellowship from Houghton Library, Harvard University.
Sander is presently a lecturer in the department of Theoretical Philosophy. He will use the prizes for a research visit to Harvard’s Department of Philosophy in the fall semester of 2016. There he will finish his dissertation-based book about the historical development of Willard Van Orman Quine’s naturalism and set up a new research project.
