Brian Leiter to be Visiting Professor in 2011/12

The Faculty of Philosophy is pleased to report that the title of Visiting Professor has been conferred on Brian Leiter for the academic year 2011/12. Professor Leiter will visit Oxford in Michaelmas Term 2011 and Trinity Term 2012, during which time he will co-teach research seminars with Peter Kail (University Lecturer in Early Modern Philosophy) and participate in conferences and workshops. The overall aim of the visits is to stimulate interest amongst the Oxford philosophy graduate community in advanced research in Nietzsche.

Brian Leiter is John P. Wilson Professor of Law at the University of Chicago, and Director of the Center for Law, Philosophy, and Human Values. His teaching and research interests are in general jurisprudence (including its intersection with issues in metaphysics and epistemology), moral and political philosophy (in both Anglophone and Continental traditions), and the law of evidence. Before taking up his post at Chicago, he taught for more than a dozen years at the University of Texas at Austin, where he was the youngest chairholder in the history of the law school, and also served as professor of philosophy and founder and director of the University of Texas Law and Philosophy Program.

As well as collaborating with graduate students and members of the Philosophy Faculty, Professor Leiter has been invited to offer papers in Jurisprudence for the Oxford Faculty of Law.
