Research Description:

Jessica Berry works on late eighteenth- to early twentieth-century German philosophy (especially issues in epistemology and value theory in the work of Friedrich Nietzsche) and in ancient Greek philosophy (especially the pre-Socratic and Hellenistic philosophers). She has taught courses on Marx, Nietzsche and Freud, Kant, Heidegger, Aristotle, the Pre-Platonic Philosophers, and on the philosophy of art. Her book Nietzsche and the Ancient Skeptical Tradition (Oxford University Press, 2011), finished with generous support from the National Endowment from the Humanities, brings together and expands upon work she has published in Philosophical Topics, The Journal of the History of Ideas, International Studies in Philosophy and elsewhere.
