The Distinguished Philosophers-in-Residence series is one of the Philosophy Program's signature projects. Each year, we bring a different distinguished senior philosopher to NYU Abu Dhabi for a weeklong visit, during which the philosopher-in-residence meets with students, attends one or more classes, delivers a public lecture, and participates in a faculty seminar on issues related to his or her work.
Our most recent Distinguished Philosopher-in-Residence was Quassim Cassam, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick. In 2019–2020, the Philosophy Program was pleased to host Karen Bennett, Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University.
