Kant's Critical Philosophy


Dr. Di Maria's teaching and research interests are primarily in early modern philosophy, especially Kant, as well as in existentialism and in tracing how the existentialists were influenced by and developed their philosophical views in response to Kant and modern philosophy.  He believes philosophy is not merely about resolving problems through conceptual analysis, but provides frameworks for how best to live a good and meaningful life.
