    Eric Anthamatten

    Profile

     

    My primary interests include philosophy of education, political philosophy, ethics, and philosophy of art.  I have taught philosophy in prisons for the past few years and have focused my work on issues that surround this subject.  My work on aesthetics explores the political and critical aspects made possible by art, most especially poetry.
