Dr. Bohnet did his doctoral work in philosophy at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. He wrote his dissertation on Hegel's critique of Kant's transcendental logic under the direction of Dr. Tom Rockmore. This work, entitled Logic and the Limits of Philosophy, was published by Palgrave Macmillan in the summer of 2015. Prior to coming to Gonzaga University, Dr. Bohnet worked as an adjunct professor at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT and as a post-doctoral Teaching Fellow at Fordham University in the Bronx. Dr Bohnet's research interests are in philosophical accounts of the essence of thought, the role of imagination in artistic and political praxis, the philosophy of human nature in light of contemporary neuroscience and biotechnology, and the unity of metaphysics and materialism in the philosophical vision of the ethical life as articulated by the 17th century lens grinder-philosopher Baruch Spinoza.
