FSU philosophy professor wins coveted NEH Fellowship
Florida State University Associate Professor of Philosophy Nathanael Stein has been selected as a recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The NEH fellowship, worth $60,000, will allow Stein to take a yearlong sabbatical to complete work on his forthcoming book tentatively titled “Causation and Explanation in Aristotle.”
Stein, a researcher of Ancient Greek philosophy who joined the FSU faculty in 2011, is one of just 81 NEH Fellowship winners this year. He is one of only six 2020-2021 winners across the nation who are conducting projects in philosophy.
The book will explore Aristotle’s fourfold division of causes — the so-called formal, final, efficient and material causes — which established the framework in which causation would be studied in Europe and in the Islamic world for two millennia.
It will be the first full-length treatment of Aristotle’s account of causation in English-language scholarship for over a century.
