G Anthony Bruno


Before joining Royal Holloway as a Lecturer in Philosophy, I was a SSHRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow at McGill University (2016-18), a Faculty Lecturer at the University of Toronto Scarborough (2015-16), and an Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Bonn (2013-15). I earned my PhD in Philosophy at the University of Toronto (2013).


Research Interests:

My research focuses on metaphysics and epistemology in Kant, German idealism, and phenomenology. I am also interested in the legacy of early modern philosophy and the contemporary reception of Kantian and post-Kantian thought. My published work investigates transcendental arguments and transcendental idealism, the relation between human freedom and systematic accounts of nature, skepticism about justification and normativity, conceptions of finitude and mortality, and nihilism and the contingency of value.
