Dalia Nassar is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Sydney. Her works sits at the interface between the history of philosophy, environmental philosophy, ethics, and aesthetics. She has published two books, including, mostly recently, Romantic Empiricism: Nature, Art, and Ecology for Herder to Humboldt (OUP 2022), which offers a revised understanding of early nineteenth-century philosophy, and demonstrates both its environmental legacy and continued significance. With plant physiologist Margaret Barbour, she has written on the ‘embodied history of trees,’ and is currently working on two new projects, one on soil and the other on the nineteenth-century German Naturphilosoph, Friedrich Schelling. With Millicent Churcher and Yarran Hominh, she is editing the 2024 issue of the Australian Philosophical Review on responsibility to the more-than-human world.
