Ian Hensley will be an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at East Tennessee State University starting in the Fall of 2020. He earned his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 2016. His research focuses on natural philosophy in ancient Greece and Rome and its connections to contemporary philosophical problems in metaphysics and philosophy of mind. He has recently published several articles on the physics of the early Greek Stoics, which explain their theories of the physical elements, principles of nature, and cosmogony. During his fellowship at CHS, he will continue this project of reconstructing the Stoics’ explanations of the natural world. By analyzing how certain key terms are used by the second-hand sources for early Stoicism, he will propose solutions to several interpretive puzzles regarding the nature of the Stoics’ basic bodies.
