Apart from Stony Brook, Professor Edwards has taught at Villanova University and Miami University. He is the Stony Brook Director of the Transatlantic Collegium of Philosophy. Edwards' areas of concentration are in the philosophy of Immanuel Kant and the history of modern philosophy. His work has focused on Kant's relations to the history of modern science, metaphysics, ethics, and political philosophy. He has written numerous articles, chapters, papers, and book reviews on these themes. The University of California Press has published his study on Kant's theory of knowledge and natural philosophy (Substance, Force, and the Possibility of Knowledge). Edwards has translated Dieter Henrich's Identity and Objectivity for Harvard University Press. He is the co-translator of Kant's first book, the Essay on Living Forces, which is being published by Cambridge University Press in its new edition of Kant's works in English. Edwards' current research centers on themes in modern moral philosophy. He is now finishing a book-Autonomy, Right, and Anthropology-that investigates problems of Kant's practical philosophy in connection with the history of modern ethics and natural-law theories.
