Nate Zuckerman's research is in the areas of phenomenology and existentialism, focusing on the issues of human finitude, agency, identity and understanding. His dissertation gives a new reading of Martin Heidegger's account of those issues in terms of a concept of time that Heidegger calls 'originary temporality' in Being and Time. Nate is also interested in explaining the influence of Aristotle's metaphysics on both Heidegger's and Kant's philosophical views about these topics.
In the spring semester of 2013, Nate will teach PHIL 101: Introduction to Philosophy and PHIL 366: Kant.
