Jeanine’s specialties include Kantian ethics, ethics and the history of modern philosophy. Her book, Kant and the Ethics of Humility: A Story of Dependence, Corruption and Virtue, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2005. She also has publications in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Mind, Inquiry, Journal of the History of Philosophy and Kant-Studien, amongst others. She has received major grants from the American Council of Learned Societies, the American Association of University Women and the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, and has been a participant in several NEH seminars and institutes. She is currently working on a book provisionally titled Kant’s Common, Phenomenological Grounding of Morality: Paying Attention to Our Moral Experiences. In it, she argues that Kant is committed to a common perspective in giving birth both to one’s moral life and to practical philosophy. The Kant that emerges is more a moral realist than a constructivist, and has more in common with Iris Murdoch’s Platonism than Rawlsian constructivism. When not philosophizing, she is usually cooking, playing the cello, or wishing she were in London.
