Béatrice Longuenesse studied at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris, France), the University of Paris-Sorbonne (where she received her Doctorat the troisième cycle (PhD) and her Doctorat d’Etat), and Princeton University. She held positions in French Universities for many years before joining the philosophy department at Princeton in 1993. She left Princeton for NYU in 2004. Her books include Kant and the Capacity to Judge (1998, a revised and expanded version of Kant et le Pouvoir de Juger, 1993), Kant on the Human Standpoint (2005) and Hegel’s Critique of Metaphysics (2007, a revised and expanded version of Hegel et la Critique de la Métaphysique, 1981). She is the co-editor, with Daniel Garber, of Kant and the Early Moderns (2008). Her current research focuses on problems of self-consciousness and self-reference, drawing both on the “continental” and the analytic tradition from Kant to contemporary philosophy.
