Samuel Stoner is a Ph.D. candidate in Tulane’s Department of Philosophy. His dissertation, “On Kant’s Philosophical Authorship,” explores Kant’s understanding of the nature and significance of philosophical communication, especially insofar as this understanding informs Kant’s own activity of composing and publishing works of philosophy for public consumption. His dissertation committee includes Profs. Oliver Sensen, Felicitas Munzel, and Ronna Burger, and Prof. Richard Velkley is the committee chair. Stoner’s essay, “Critical Philosophy as Artistic Endeavor,” is published in the Southwest Philosophy Review, and he was recently invited to contribute an essay on practical reason to the Encyclopedia of Political Thought.
