Béatrice Longuenesse is Silver Professor of Philosophy at New York University. She received her education at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, the University of Paris-Sorbonne, and at Princeton University. Longuenesse was a fellow at the Wissenschaftskolleg in Berlin in 2006 and was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2011. She is the author of Kant and the Capacity to Judge (Princeton, 1998), an expanded English version of Kant et le Pouvoir de Juger (Presses Universitaires de France, 1993); Kant on the Human Standpoint (Cambridge, 2005); and Hegel’s Critique of Metaphysics (Cambridge, 2007), an expanded English translation of Hegel et la Critique de la Métaphysique (Vrin, 1981). She co-edited, with Daniel Garber, Kant and the Early Moderns (Princeton, 2008) and has written over fifty articles on issues in the history of modern European philosophy. Her current research focuses on notions of self-consciousness and self-reference, drawing on both the recent continental and the analytic traditions in philosophy.
