Keith Peterson has just completed two major projects. The first is a monograph entitled A World not Made for Us: Topics in Critical Environmental Philosophy, published with SUNY Press, SUNY series in Environmental Philosophy and Ethics, 2020.

Jim Behuniak has recently published a two-volume set on John Dewey and Chinese philosophy, entitled John Dewey and Daoist Thought: Experiments in Intra-Cultural Philosophy, Vol. 1 and John Dewey and Confucian Thought: Experiments in Intra-Cultural Philosophy, Vol. 2, both with State University of New York Press.  He has also edited the volume, Appreciating the Chinese Difference: Engaging Roger T. Ames on Methods, Issues, and Roles, also with SUNY Press.


For the past few years, Dan Cohen has been working on developing “Virtue Argumentation Theory” — an agent-based approach to argumentation, with roots in Aristotelian virtue ethics and contemporary virtue epistemology. That work culminated in an invitation to be the keynote speaker for the 10th OSSA conference on the theme of Virtue and Arguments in 2013. (His keynote address was published in Informal Logic and can be viewed here) As a result, he was then invited to edit a special issue of the European journal Topoi dedicated to that topic, his current project.


Jill Gordon is currently editing a volume of essays by philosophers and classicists about hearing, sound, and the auditory in ancient Greek and Roman texts, and her own contribution to the volume is “Listening to the Seventh Letter” in which she examines the politics of hearing in the Platonic corpus and argues for a liberation of the senses, especially hearing. In August of 2019, she was appointed as Director of the American Philosophical Association’s Site Visit Program, a program run through the APA’s Committee on the Status of Women aimed at improving the climate for women and other under-represented groups in philosophy departments across the U.S. and Canada. She also recently published “Black Bodies Matter: A Reading of Ta-Nahisi Coates’s Between the World and Me,” which argues for a materialist reading of Coates’s best-selling book. Her 2012 book, Plato’s Erotic World: From Cosmic Origins to Human Death (Cambridge University Press) will be translated into Chinese and published in 2020.


Lydia Moland’s Hegel’s Aesthetics: The Art of Idealism was published by Oxford University Press in 2019, and her edited volume All Too Human: Laughter, Humor, and Comedy in Nineteenth-Century Philosophy was published by Springer in 2018.  She is currently working on a biography of the American abolitionist Lydia Maria Child (forthcoming from University of Chicago Press: sneak peek here) and recently completed a leave of absence funded by the American Council of Learned Societies and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
