Brandon Absher


I am an Assistant Professor at D’Youville College in the Department of Liberal Arts and the Co-Coordinator of the Radical Philosophy Association. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Kentucky in 2010 with a dissertation entitled “Situating Language: Language, Practice, and Meaning in the Thought of Ludwig Wittgenstein and Martin Heidegger.” My primary research is in 20th Century Continental Philosophy with a special emphasis on the theories of language and mind developed by Wittgenstein and Heidegger and their intersections with Political and Social Theory. I also have interests in Environmental Philosophy and in 19th Century German Philosophy.
