Portrait of Christian Pfeiffer

We are pleased to announce that Christian Pfeiffer was awarded tenure and promoted to the rank of associate professor, as of July 1, 2022.

Pfeiffer joined the department in 2019 from his assistant professor position at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich. Prior to this, he received his Ph.D. from Humbolt-University of Berlin (2012) and studied philosophy and ancient Greek at the Humboldt Universität, the Freie Universität in Berlin, the University of Edinburgh and Princeton University.

Pfeiffer specializes in ancient philosophy, in particular, in Aristotle’s theoretical philosophy. His 2018 book Aristotle’s Theory of Bodies (OUP) offers a ground-breaking study of Aristotle’s conception of the body and related notions like surface, boundary, extension, contact, and continuity. He is currently working on his second book, a monograph on Aristotle’s Metaphysics H. The new book will shed fresh light on Aristotle’s theory of hylomorphism.

Christian teaches undergraduate courses in Ancient Philosophy, including a fourth-year seminar on the Stoics.

Congratulations, Professor Pfeiffer!
