Welcome to the personal website of philosopher D.J. Hobbs. I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from Marquette University in August 2017. I specialize in Continental Philosophy from the 19th century to the present, with a particular focus on phenomenology in the Husserlian tradition and hermeneutics as well as the application of these approaches to the theory of value. In addition, my areas of interest include ethics, philosophy of mind, formal logic, the philosophy of culture, and the history of philosophy, with special emphasis on German philosophers such as Kant, Hegel, and Nietzsche.
The purpose of this website is to provide a concise overview of my academic background, my philosophical research, and my teaching experience. At the links above this page, you may read brief accounts of my personal and academic history, my research interests and ongoing projects, and my philosophical writings. You will also find a brief sketch of my background in teaching and my pedagogy.
