Edward Casey, past chairman of the department (1991-2001), works in aesthetics, philosophy of space and time, ethics, perception, and psychoanalytic theory. He obtained his doctorate at Northwestern University in 1967 and has taught at Yale University, the University of California at Santa Barbara, The New School for Social Research, Emory University, and several other institutions. His published books include Imagining: A Phenomenological Study (Studies in Continental Thought) (Indiana University Press, 2000), Remembering: A Phenomenological Study (Studies in Continental Thought) (Indiana University Press, 2000), Getting Back into Place (Indiana University Press, 1993), and The Fate of Place (University of California Press, 1997). He has extended his close examination of the place-world to maps and landscape paintings in Representing Place in Landscape Paintings and Maps (Minnesota, 2002) and Earth-Mapping (Minnesota, 2005). A new direction of research is visual perception, with an emphasis on the unsuspected power and subtlety of the glance. A book titled The World at a Glance has just appeared (2007). Future projects will focus on edges, feeling, feeling and thinking. Overall, Casey's philosophical work is broadly descriptive and attempts to bear out the nuances of basic phenomena of human experience that have been neglected in earlier philosophical accounts.
