Knox Peden

 

Knox Peden earned his PhD in European Intellectual History from UC Berkeley in 2009 and since then he has pursued research at the intersections of history and philosophy. He has published widely on modern French philosophy and intellectual history and has special expertise on Spinoza's thought and its reception in various historical contexts.

Spinoza Contra Phenomenology: French Rationalism from Cavaillès to Deleuze appeared with Stanford University Press in 2014 and has played a role in shifting emphasis to the rationalist elements in modern French thought. He is at work on a translation and scholarly edition of Jean Cavaillès's Sur la logique et la théorie de la science. His volume on French Philosophy for Oxford UP's "Very Short Introductions" series, co-authored with Stephen Gaukroger, will appear in 2020. Philosophy of history and history of historiography are other areas of research, with a particular focus on the place of politics in historical interpretation and writing. In addition to books and edited collections, his work has appeared in Modern Intellectual History, History & Theory, Intellectual History Review, and History of European Ideas, as well as the Sydney Review of Books and the Los Angeles Review of Books.
