Peter Antich joined Dominican University in 2022. He teaches classes throughout Philosophy, from Logic to Medieval Philosophy to Bioethics. His research focuses on Phenomenology and the Philosophy of Perception and is centered around the way meaning emerges within our embodied, perceptual experience. His recent work has investigated the Philosophy of Race, in particular the way in which racialized or racist habits can permeate perception. Prior to joining Dominican, he taught at Trinity College (Hartford) and Marquette University.
Peter recently published a book, Motivation and the Primacy of Perception: Merleau-Ponty’s Phenomenology of Knowledge (Ohio University Press, 2021), which took a Phenomenological approach to questions about the relation between knowledge and experience. He is currently working on another book on the Philosophy of Perception.
Outside of teaching and research, Peter enjoys reading, baking, and playing (overly complicated!) board games.
