Krisanna M Scheiter

Associate Professor of Philosophy at Union College

I specialize in ancient Greek and Roman philosophy.  My research focuses on Plato and Aristotle’s accounts of emotion, desire, imagination, and thinking as well as Aristotle’s account of anger and revenge. My work has been published in Phronesis and I served as guest editor for a volume in Philosophia entitled Ethics of Forgiveness and Revenge. In 2015 I received a Loeb Classical Library Foundation Fellowship for my project on virtue and vengeance in Aristotle. Before that I was the recipient of the John D. MacArthur Assistant Professorship at Union College. I am currently co-editing a volume for Springer with Paula Satne (Manchester) entitled Conflict and Resolution: the Ethics of Forgiveness, Revenge, and Punishment. Recently my research was featured on Academic Minute. For more information about my work please feel free to email me at
