Areas of Expertise

17th and 18th century European Philosophy (especially Kant’s metaphysics and epistemology)


Tim Jankowiak’s research focuses primarily on 18th century European philosophy, especially
the metaphysics, epistemology, and theory of mind of Immanuel Kant (1724-1804). Professor
Jankowiak’s recent work has articulated an interpretation of Kant’s theory of the
cognitive function of sensory input in the human mind’s construction of its representation
of physical reality. Recent publications include “Kant’s Argument for the Principle
of Intensive Magnitudes” (Kantian Review 18(3), 2013), “Sensations as Representations in Kant” (British Journal for the History of Philosophy 22(3), 2014), as well as a long entry on Kant for the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (2014).

In addition to teaching regular sections of Introduction to Philosophy (Phil 101)
and Introduction to Ethics (Phil 103), Professor Jankowiak will be offering upper
division courses on Modern Philosophy (Phil 324) and Kant (Phil 427), and he will
be designing upper division courses in contemporary metaphysics and philosophy of
