Krisanna M Scheiter

Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Union College

I specialize in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy. My work currently focuses on emotion and imagination (phantasia) in Plato and Aristotle. However, I am also interested in both ancient and contemporary questions regarding the ontology and morality of emotion.  What are emotions?  How do we differentiate between individual emotions? Are we morally responsible for our emotions or are we responsible only for actions motivated by emotional states? I am especially interested in questions regarding the ethics of anger, revenge, and forgiveness. Please feel free to email me at scheitek@union.edu.
