Professor Wrathall's research focuses on the existential and phenomenological traditions in philosophy. He is particularly interested in phenomenological accounts of perception, language, art, religion, and law. Wrathall is the author of How to Read Heidegger, and has edited several collections of essays, including A Companion to Phenomenology and Existentialism and Religion after Metaphysics. Recent articles draw on the work of Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Nietzsche, and Pascal. He has taught courses over the past few years on phenomenology, existentialism, perception, art, and the philosophy of law. Wrathall is currently working on a book-length manuscript on Heidegger's later work, and editing The Cambridge Companion to Heidegger's Being and Time. Visit his web site for more.
