Stephen Ferguson is currently pursuing his doctorate in Philosophy at Fordham University. He studies phenomenological hermeneutics, philosophy of religion, and political philosophy and has taught both Human Nature and Ethics. His research investigates the role of phronesis in addressing the critical problem of making true judgments within the framework of verbum hermeneutics, especially in the work of the early Heidegger, Gadamer, and Bernard Lonergan, SJ. Previously, Stephen studied at Boston College, where he received a BA in Philosophy with a minor in Economics (2015, summa cum laude) and was part of the Perspectives Honors Program. He also received an MA in Philosophy there in 2017, during which time he was a Lonergan Master’s Fellow. He has written book reviews for The Lonergan Review. Next year, he will be pursuing a JD at Yale Law School in the class of 2025. In his free time, Stephen loves running and biking, playing Scrabble, and swing dancing.
