Dr. Berman’s research interests focus on Descartes, Neoplatonism, and the notion of infinity. She has published and lectured locally and nationally on Plotinus, Anselm, Nicholas of Cusa, and Descartes. Her manuscript for a book on “Descartes and the Infinite,” for which she has a publishing agreement with The Edwin Mellen Press, is in its final stages. At the College, she has designed several new courses: Women in Philosophy, Business Ethics (in collaboration with the Department of Management), Descartes, Plato and Neoplatonism (Honors seminar), The Infinite (Honors seminar, in collaboration with the Department of Mathematics). Dr. Berman became Chair of the Department of Philosophy (now Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies) in 2000, and has served on several Faculty Committees. She is a member of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, and an honorary member of the Duns Scotus Honor Society. She has philosophical affiliations with the American Philosophical Association, the American Catholic Philosophical Association, the American Cusanus Society, and the Renaissance Society of America.
