Dr. Garrera-Tolbert’s work deals with issues that lie in the intersection of ethics (broadly construed), ontology, and phenomenology. His phenomenological approach to ethics is articulated around three axes: (i) the examination of ethical experience as the ultimate source of normativity; (ii) the eminently affective, embodied character of ethical experience and the role of affectivity in ethical life and reasoning; and (iii) the ethical significance of testimonies conceived as responses to the experience of human evil. As a DAAD-scholar at the International Center for Philosophy in Bonn (Germany), he recently concluded a post-doctoral research project on the ontological commitments of his approach to ethics. He presented his work at numerous national and international conferences. He is currently working on his first book (on the ethics of Michel Henry and Emmanuel Levinas) and, as an editor, on a compilation of papers on phenomenological responses to the "new realisms."
