Bio and CV

Since Fall 2014, I have been an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto. My primary research interests are metaphysics and it's history (mainly in German philosophy). My first book, Kant's Modal Metaphysics, was published by Oxford University Press in 2016. I am currently working on a book about what Kant's critique of metaphysics has to do with contemporary analytic metaphysics; it's tentative title is How is Metaphysics Possible? Kant's Question and Three Attempts at an Answer.

While most of my published work has been about Kant, I am increasingly interested in pre-Kantian rationalism (Spinoza, Leibniz) and in Post-Kantian figures, especially Hegel and Heidegger. I also work on contemporary metaphysics and aesthetics. I also have side interests in Jewish philosophy, early analytic philosophy, philosophy of mathematics and critical theory. 

I also blog occasionally about aesthetics at Aesthetics for Birds. I can be found on Twitter at @sturmundstang. I am also available at and at PhilPapers. Here is my CV.
