Even at a time when much of the world’s information is accessible at the click of a button, the opportunity to conduct research on-site in Germany has
been invaluable to Christopher Yeomans, professor and incoming head of the
Department of Philosophy. As an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Research
Fellow at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Yeomans has combined
his research on the philosophies of three prominent 18th-century German
Idealists with the historical context of the time in which they lived and wrote.
