Dhananjay Jagannathan

Dhananjay Jagannathan is Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Director of Graduate Studies of the Classical Studies Program at Columbia University. His recent scholarly work has focused on Aristotle's ethics and political philosophy, but his research interests range over ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, philosophy and literature, the history of ethics, and theories of practical reason. In his book manuscript Aristotle's Practical Epistemology, he argues against the conflation of practical knowledge with scientific knowledge, a conflation that continues to distort not only readings of Aristotle but also our understanding of how different kinds of knowledge are related and which are rightly thought of as basic.

Dhananjay Jagannathan serves as an Advisory Committee Member.
