Professor Emily Thomas (Durham) – Time and Subtle Pictures in the History of Philosophy
Emily Thomas is Associate Professor in Philosophy at Durham University. Prior to this she obtained a PhD from the University of Cambridge, and held a NWO grant at the University of Groningen. She has published widely on the history of metaphysics, especially space and time. In 2018 she published two books: a monograph Absolute Time: Rifts in Early Modern British Metaphysics (Oxford University Press) and a collection Early Modern Women on Metaphysics (Cambridge University Press). Her next book, on the philosophy of travel, is forthcoming in 2020. She has recently started a new, AHRC-funded project exploring time in early twentieth century British metaphysics.
