Selected Recent Research
Nathan entered the University of Kansas in 2004 after being offered a full time fellowship for graduate study. In early 2011, Nathan defended his dissertation with honors, entitled “Other Than Omniscient: An Interpretation and Defense of Kant’s Rejection of Aristotle’s Notion of Finite Reasoning.”
Nathan was a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Kansas for five years, and then the Visiting Assistant Professor of philosophy at Rockhurst University in Kansas City from 2010-2011, before taking an Instructor position at Seattle University in 2011.
All of Nathan’s research has two ultimate goals: to understand the nature of the limits of (and prospects for) human reason, and to provide a theoretical basis for social justice. He is currently working more on the former objective with a book on Aristotle’s theory of knowledge, arguing that such a theory anticipates and responds to many cases of modern and contemporary skepticism.
Nathan lives in North Seattle with his wife and three children.
