Sean J. McGrath will be joining the School of Religious Studies for the 2019-20 academic year. He is Full Professor of Philosophy at Memorial University and a Member of the College of the Royal Society of Canada. A specialist in the history of philosophy and Christian theology, McGrath has published and lectured widely in German idealism, phenomenology, ecology, philosophical theology, and psychoanalysis. He is the author of four books, and many papers, book chapters, and edited volumes, including, The Early Heidegger and Medieval Philosophy (Catholic University of America, 2006), Heidegger: A (Very) Critical Introduction (Eerdmans, 2008), The Dark Ground of Spirit: Schelling and the Unconscious (Routledge, 2012), and Thinking Nature: An Essay in Negative Ecology (Edinburgh University, 2019). McGrath is currently finishing a monograph on the late Schelling's philosophy of religion. McGrath is also a founder of the North American Schelling Society, and the Memorial European Summer School in Philosophy (and long-serving Chair of its Department of Philosophy). We in the School of Religious Studies are grateful to be able to host him, in order to advance extant and prospective research collaborations.
Look out for him on campus as of May 1!
