Clayton Bohnet



Clayton Bohnet received his doctorate in Philosophy from Duquesne University in 2011-12.  In an effort to ground historically his understanding of the difference between analytic and continental philosophy he wrote his dissertation under Dr. Tom Rockmore on the philosophy of logic in Kant and Hegel (Logic and the Limits of Philosophy, Palgrave, 2015). His recent work A Polis on the Edge of the Void: A Philosophical Montage on Protest is set to be published by Lexington Press June 2019. Bohnet’s current research interests are: the history of Spinoza’s reception, the concept of life in applied ethics, and the value of the Frankfurt School’s reading of the ‘Enlightenment’ for understanding contemporary political milieu. He has previously taught Philosophy of Art, Modern Philosophy, 19th/20th Century Philosophy, and World Religions. He currently teaches Introduction to Philosophy, Moral Controversies, and Asian Philosophy.
