Jeremy Dunham, PhD


A short introduction

Dr. Dunham is Assistant Professor in Philosophy at the University of Durham. He is interested in issues in metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of mind in early modern and nineteenth-century philosophy. Dr. Dunham spends a lot of my time working on uncovering forgotten figures in the history of philosophy (James Ward, Charles Renouvier, and Clarisse Coignet, to name a few), but has recently been focusing his research on the more well known philosophers William James and Hegel. He is writing a book on William James and the relationship between his metaphysics and his pragmatism, and hopes to finish that relatively soon. Dr. Dunham is also writing a book on habit in the history of philosophy (from Descartes to Dewey), which will no doubt take a lot longer. His previous research focused on the reception of Leibnizian Metaphysics and attempts to defend and redevelop the monadology after the Kantian revolution. Dr. Dunham has co-edited a special issue of the British Journal for the History of Philosophy focusing on this topic (with Pauline Phemister). He has also co-authored a monograph, Idealism: The History of a Philosophy, Routledge (with Iain Hamilton Grant and Sean Watson). Before coming to work at Durham, Dr. Dunham held a Levehulme Early Career Fellowship at the University of Sheffield, a Visiting Fellowship at the University of Chicago's Commitee on Social Thought, and an Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities Research Fellowship at the University of Edinburgh.


Thoughts are more real than objects (The Return of Idealism)

Idealism is often regarded as a philosophy entailing that the world exists just in our heads, which is obviously false. Rising philosophical star Dr. Jeremy Dunham argues that this view of idealism is a misconception. Idealism is a much more realist worldview than we think, and more realist than its alternatives, as it does not deny the existence of the most real things there are: thoughts.
