Andrew Chignell to join Princeton Faculty on January 1, 2018

Nov. 20, 2017

Princeton University is proud to announce that Andrew Chignell will join the faculty on January 1, 2018, as a Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor, teaching in Religion and Philosophy, and directing a Project in Philosophy and Religion in the University Center for Human Values.  Professor Chignell will spend the calendar year 2018 away from Princeton, to continue to avail himself of the honor of a Humboldt Fellowship for Experienced Researchers hosted in Berlin and Frankfurt, and will begin to teach at Princeton in Spring 2019. 

Professor Chignell’s work in Kant and modern European philosophy, philosophy of religion, the moral psychology of hope and despair, aesthetics, and the ethics of belief, as well as his developing interest in food ethics, make him an outstanding choice to advance the study of religion and philosophy within the University as he has done within the scholarly community more generally.  Princeton is delighted to welcome him to the faculty in 2018 as the Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor of Religion and the University Center for Human Values.
