Clayton Bohnet earned his doctorate degree in philosophy from Duquesne University (Pittsburgh, PA) specializing in 20th century philosophy and German Idealism. He is currently turning his doctoral dissertation on Kant, Hegel and the philosophy of logic into a manuscript for publication, and has recently found a publisher for his master’s thesis on Judith Butler, Nietzsche, and Foucault. As a teacher, he seeks to inspire critical and compassionate discussions in and beyond the classroom, as well as rigorous readings of primary texts. Outside of the academy Clayton has been an exhibiting painter for over a decade, and has recently had one of his poems published in a small press based in Toronto, Canada. He believes that the nature of philosophy is properly grasped when the boundary between academic inquiry and everyday life becomes porous.
