Personal bio
R. Lanier Anderson (Associate Professor of Philosophy, Kaneko Family University Fellow in Undergraduate Education) works in the history of late modern philosophy, and his research has focused primarily on Kant and his influence on nineteenth century philosophy, and on Nietzsche. He received a B.A. in Philosophy from Yale, and M.A. and P.D. degrees in Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania. His teaching interests include courses about Existentialism and Philosophy and Literature, as well as figures in the history of philosophy related to his research. With Joshua Landy (French), he has been instrumental in developing new major tracks in Philosophical and Literary Thought at Stanford. Lanier is the author of many articles on Kant, on Nietzsche, and on the neo-Kantian movement. Selected papers include â??It Adds Up After All: Kantâ??s Philosophy of Arithmetic in Light of the Traditional Logicâ?? (Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, 2004), and â??Nietzsche on Truth, Illusion, and Redemptionâ?? (The European Journal of Philosophy, 2005). Current research interests a book on Kantâ??s theoretical philosophy that will be finished soon, and work on Nietzsche's moral psychology, the foundations of knowledge claims in the humanities, and special topics in existentialism and the relations between philosophy and literature. He came to Stanford in 1996, and has also taught at Harvard, Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Penn.
