Maya Krishnan

I recently finished my doctorate in philosophy at the University of Oxford, where I am an Examination Fellow at All Souls College. Prior to my doctorate, I completed the BPhil in Philosophy at Oxford and obtained a BA in philosophy from Stanford. In the autumn of 2024, I will be starting as an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy department at the University of Chicago.

My historical research concerns Kant and German Idealism, with a particular focus on Kant's theology. My contemporary work connects views inspired by German Idealist thinkers with current debates in ethics and epistemology; at the moment, I'm working on projects on autonomy and intelligibility. I combine my scholarly and contemporary work by looking into the afterlife of theological ideas in secular philosophical debates on knowledge and freedom.
