Dr. Nathan Ross,
Philosophy & Rhetoric Dept. Chair, Professor of Philosophy


Nathan Ross is Professor of Philosophy and Chair of the Philosophy and Rhetoric Department at Oklahoma City University. Having studied at DePaul University and various universities in Germany, he has a deep interest in teaching and researching the history of philosophy, with a special focus on German language philosophy. He is interested in understanding how the ways that we acquire knowledge about the world relate to other modes of experience, such as the experience of beauty, the good, justice or injustice. He is engaged in a number of research projects that deal with the philosophical meaning of art and aesthetics in German philosophy from the 19th and 20th century: a book-length study of the history of aesthetic experience, with special focus on its political meaning; a translation of Georg Bertram's Art as Human Practice (Suhrkamp,2014); and an edited volume on the role of aesthetic experience in the philosophies of Theodor W. Adorno and Walter Benjamin. His first book, On Mechanism in Hegel's Social and Political Philosophy, was published by Routledge in 2008, and he has published essays in Philosophy Today, The Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal, Epoché.
