Elise Whatley

Credentials: Early Modern Philosophy

Email: ewhatley@wisc.edu

Elise is interested in metaphysics and philosophy of mind in Early Modern philosophy. They are currently thinking about how Thomas Hobbes reconciled his seemingly devout theism with his materialist perspective on the universe. They plan to write a prospectus (and hopefully dissertation) on this puzzle, or something in the ballpark of it. When Elise isn’t reading philosophy, they enjoy playing board games, birdwatching, reading fiction, and hanging out with their partner and three cats.
