Jonathan Maskit


I teach in the department of philosophy at Denison University.  My research interests include aesthetics, environmental philosophy, and continental philosophy, with particular emphases on environmental aesthetics and the connections between our concepts (e.g., that of nature) and our practices.

I serve as the reviews editor for Ethics, Place, and Environment: A Journal of Philosophy & Geography.  To see a list of books currently available for review, click here.  For the EPE Book Review Style Guide, please click here (pdf).
