Krisanna M Scheiter

Associate Professor and Chair 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 recently contributed a chapter to Aristotle’s On the Soul: A Critical Guide (ed. Caleb Cohoe) and published an edited volume for Springer, co-edited with Paula Satne (Wolverhampton) entitled Conflict and Resolution: the Ethics of Forgiveness, Revenge, and Punishment. In 2015 I received a Loeb Classical Library Foundation Fellowship for my project on virtue and vengeance in Aristotle. My research was also featured on Academic Minute.
