Tanner Hammond



I'm a lecturer of philosophy and interdisciplinary humanities at Boston University, where I received my PhD in philosophy in April 2019. 

My research focuses on issues bridging ethics, philosophy of emotion and embodied cognition, and the history of post-Kantian European thought. My recent work draws upon converging insights from early 20th century phenomenology and recent cognitive science in order to advance the idea that our emotional states constitute perceptions of the evaluative features of the world. See more about my research.

In addition to my research and teaching in philosophy, I'm also a Writing Fellow in the Boston University Writing Program, where I design and teach interdisciplinary humanities courses for first year college students. I have a background in educational theory and instructional design, and I have special interests in the applications of philosophical method to writing pedagogy. See more about my teaching
