Alan Kim received his BA from Haverford College, and received his Ph.D. from McGill University in 2001. He works in both German and ancient Greek philosophy, focusing especially on Phenomenology, neo-Kantianism, and Plato. From 1998 to 2000 he was a Fulbright Scholar at Heidelberg, where he studied both philosophy and classics. He comes to Stony Brook University having taught at Dartmouth, Colgate, Hamilton, and Memphis. His ancient research interests include Plato’s theory of forms, the structure of dialectic, and Socratic ethics. His research in German thought deals with Heidegger, neo-Kantianism, and Phenomenology.

His book, Plato in Germany: Kant – Natorp – Heidegger (Academia Verlag) appeared in 2010. He has published articles in Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy, Phronesis, Idealistic Studies, Internationale Zeitschrift für Philosophie, The Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Psychology, the Southern Journal for Philosophy, and the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. He is currently writing a chapter for the forthcoming volume, The Legacy of Neo-Kantianism (Cambridge), and an article in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, as well as editing the Companion to German Platonism (Brill). His new book project is entitled Selves in Dialogue: A Socratic Ethics of Authenticity and Autonomy.

His current teaching interests include Plato’s metaphysics and epistemology; Aristotle’s philosophy of nature and psychology; and comparative classical Greek and Chinese moral thought.
