Staff Profile

Dr Andrea Rehberg

Lecturer in Philosophy


My area of expertise is post-Kantian European philosophy, especially 19th- and 20th-century German and French thought, with emphasis on Kant, Nietzsche, Heidegger and their 20th-century French readers, including Bataille, Deleuze, Derrida, and Foucault. I also work on philosophical feminism, especially Irigaray. Another research area is Phenomenology and the Philosophy of Art. I have also worked on Schopenhauer and the philosophical implications of Freud's work.

I am the book reviews editor of the Journal of the British Society for Phenomenology, and on the editorial board of the 'Values and Identities' series at Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. I am a member of the executive of the British Society for Phenomenology, the Society for European Philosophy and the Friedrich Nietzsche Society, as well as being an invited member of the Latin American Asociacion Interacional de Fenomenologie y Ciencia Cognitiva

I joined Newcastle University in 2016, but had previously taught at Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Dundee, as well as in Turkey, and the US.

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
