Philip Rose, Associate Professor, Undergraduate Advisor.
Dr. Rose specializes in Environmental Philosophy with
particular emphasis on environmental ethics, metaphysics, the philosophy
of nature, and the philosophy of technology. His current research is
aimed at developing a more Speculative approach to Environmental
Philosophy that builds upon the work of C.S Peirce and A.N. Whitehead.
Some of the important speculative themes covered by Dr. Rose’s research
include: the nature of space and time, the nature and role of efficient
and final causation, the ontological status of natural kinds, and the
nature of normativity as such. Drawing heavily upon both the
Anglo-American and Continental traditions, Dr. Rose’s long term project
involves the systematic application of his speculative work in such
important fields as the philosophy of nature, the philosophy of the
self, argumentation and reasoning, the
philosophy of technology, aesthetics, and ethics. Dr. Rose received his
Ph.D. from Queen’s University at Kingston.
