Frank Fraser Potter Memorial Lecture

Hubert L. Dreyfus

Hubert Dreyfus (B.A. and Ph.D., Harvard) is considered a leading interpreter of the work of Michel Foucault, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and especially Martin Heidegger.

While spending most of his teaching career at the University of California, Berkeley, Professor Dreyfus has also taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (from 1960 to 1968) and the University of Frankfurt (1989).

In addition to his influential critique of artificial intelligence, Dreyfus is known for making the work of continental philosophers accessible to analytically trained philosophers.
