The Global Center for Advanced Studies (GCAS) is pleased to announce that Prof. Gregory Sadler has joined our Faculty.
Gregory Sadler is a philosopher, educator, content producer, philosophical counselor, and president and co-founder of ReasonIO.  He completed his doctorate in philosophy, writing on Maurice Blondel’s works, at Southern Illinois University in 2002, then taught for six years in Ball State University’s four-year degree program at Indiana State Prison.  From 2008 to 2011, he taught at Fayetteville State University, where he designed and ran a pilot Reading Across the Curriculum Program, oversaw university-wide assessment of student learning, and wrote portions of FSU’s 10-year institutional Quality Enhancement Plan.  In 2011, he relocated to New York, where he teaches for Marist College and Oplerno, provides workshops and lectures, and is working on several research projects.

In his popular main YouTube channel, which has over 17,000 subscribers and over 1.5 million views, he provides lecture videos on thinkers, texts, and topics ranging across the history of philosophy.  One of his current video projects is “Half-Hour Hegel” (with 40 installments completed), in which he leads viewers through Hegel’s Phenomenology paragraph by paragraph, ultimately intending to comment on the entire work.

In addition to publishing his first book in 2011, Reason Fulfilled by Revelation: the 1930s Christian Philosophy Debates in France, he has published dozens of articles, book chapters, and encyclopedia entries on thinkers including Aristotle, Anselm of Canterbury, Thomas Hobbes, G.W.F. Hegel, Max Scheler, Maurice Blondel, Jacques Lacan, Alasdair MacIntyre, Jacques Derrida, and Adriaan Peperzak.

He has been an Erasmus Institute faculty fellow (2005), a Charles Chesnutt Library Fellow (2009-2010), and a Visiting Scholar at European Graduate School (2014), and is a member of the Center for Aristotelian Studies in Ethics and Politics.
