Tyke Nunez


I am a visiting postdoctoral fellow in the philosophy department at Universität Leipzig.
I received my PhD in April 2015 from the University of Pittsburgh.

My research is primarily on Kant and the History of Analytic Philosophy. I have secondary interests in the Philosophy of Logic, Philosophical Logic, Ancient Philosophy, 19th and 20th Century European Philosophy, Philosophy of Mind, and Environmental Ethics. My current two main research projects are:

1) Kant on the Nature of Logic

2) Kant on the Constitution of Experience
