Christopher Yeomans

Associate Professor Christopher Yeomans’ scholarly work is a project of critical social theory that integrates the conceptual riches of the Kantian theory of autonomy (free will) with the phenomenological riches of an expressivist moral psychology, and with the political riches of concrete social and historical description. 

As a matter of the history of philosophy, G.W.F. Hegel pursued a project of this sort for his own time, and Yeoman’s work from his dissertation to the present has been primarily concerned with reconstructing Hegel’s views.  His first monograph, Freedom and Reflection: Hegel and the Logic of Agency (Oxford University Press, 2011), dealt primarily with free will. 

His second monograph, The Expansion of Autonomy: Hegel’s Pluralistic Moral Psychology, will be published by Oxford University Press in 2014.  This year he is a Faculty Fellow for Study in a Second Discipline in the Department of History.
