KATHRIN KOSLICKI (PhD, MIT, 1995) was born in Munich, Germany, where she spent the first eighteen years of her life. She came to America when she was twenty, after driving her motorcycle (then a Honda XL500, single-cylinder enduro) across France, Spain and Portugal for a year, trying (and failing) to understand Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.

After a year of studying philosophy and classical philology at the University of Tübingen, Germany, Koslicki completed her undergraduate work at SUNY Stony Brook in 1990, received her PhD from MIT in 1995, and spent the next decade or so teaching in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Florida, and, most recently, at Tufts University. She joined the CU Philosophy Department in the Fall of 2007, thrilled to have escaped Boston’s gloomy six-month-long winters.

Her interests in philosophy lie mainly in metaphysics, the philosophy of language, and Ancient Greek philosophy, particularly Aristotle. In her monograph, The Structure of Objects, which appeared with Oxford University Press in April 2008, she defends a structure-based, neo-Aristotelian theory of parts and wholes.
