Miscellaneous Information

Miscellaneous Information:

Dr Alon Segev was a Max-Planck “Minerva” Fellow (teaching and research) in the Department of Philosophy, University of Heidelberg and then a DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) Fellow at the Martin-Buber Institute (University of Cologne).

In the USA, Alon has taught at the University of Pennsylvania (U-Penn) as well as Fordham University, and since 2012 he has been teaching Continental Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Springfield. Alon has given many talks on a range of issues in philosophy and also in the broad field of Holocaust Studies at top-rated universities such as U-Penn, Harvard, Pittsburgh, Brown and Columbia.

Alon has also been a Visiting Scholar at Stanford, Berkeley, Pittsburgh and Arizona Universities in the USA, as well as at the University of Jerusalem and Stellenbosch University in South Africa.

His book, Thinking and Killing - Philosophical Discourse in the Shadow of the Third Reich (New York / Berlin: Walter de Gruyter 2013) deals with the contribution of eight German thinkers to the discussion about the Holocaust and the Final Solution. The book was selected by ‘Knowledge Unlatched’ to be in their pilot package of the 28 most “interesting academic books” that appeared in 2013. The book quickly sold out, mainly to universities across the globe.

In the past few years, Alon has published extensively on subjects in modern German philosophy (Heidegger, Husserl, Hegel, Gadamer), in classical philosophy (Aristotle), and in modern philosophy (Hume).

Dr Segev is currently working on a book which deals with modern readings of Descartes
