Sarah Horton is a Ph.D candidate in Philosophy at Boston College. She specializes in ethics and 19th-20th century European philosophy, focusing on the themes of embodiment, language, and fidelity to others. Her dissertation, which she will defend on March 13, 2020, investigates the nature of friendship and concludes that friendship is suited to humans because of our finitude, which is itself a positive good. She has published four peer-reviewed journal articles on figures including Sartre and Levinas, as well as a book chapter on Kierkegaard (in Authorship and Authority in Kierkegaard’s Writing, ed. Joseph Westfall, Bloomsbury, 2018). She coedited the book Somatic Desire: Recovering Corporeality in Contemporary Thought (eds. Sarah Horton, Stephen Mendelsohn, Christine Rojcewicz, and Richard Kearney, Lexington Press, 2019). She has given eight conference presentations on topics ranging from language and justice in Plato’s Cratylus to embodiment in Sartre and Beauvoir. In addition, she has translated six articles by authors including Emmanuel Falque and Jean-Luc Marion from French to English, and her French to English translation of Stanislas Breton’s Poetics of the Sensible (Poétique du sensible) is currently under review at the University of Notre Dame Press. From fall 2016 through spring 2019, she taught Philosophy of the Person I and II, a two-semester introduction to philosophy that uses primary texts and covers the history of philosophy from ancient to contemporary. In 2018 she received the Donald J. White Teaching Award, with which Boston College recognizes the best Teaching Fellows from each department. She has a B.A. in Philosophy from Grove City College (2015, summa cum laude) and an M.A. in Philosophy from Boston College (2017). She is spending the 2019-2020 academic year as a pensionnaire étrangère at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris.
