About Rebecca Lloyd Waller

Rebecca Lloyd Waller began teaching at Kenyon in Fall 2009 as an assistant professor. Rebecca came to Kenyon after completing a dissertation on Descartes' account of time at Purdue University. She also has published papers on Leibniz's and Spinoza's accounts of time and McTaggart's famous refutation of time. She is currently in the final stages of completing a book on Descartes' temporal dualism.
Rebecca entered Purdue with a master's degree in philosophy from Marquette University and with bachelor's degrees from Siena Heights University in English and philosophy.
Rebecca's primary research interests are in the history of philosophy and in metaphysics. She has particular interest in the works of Descartes, and in the topics of time and free will. When not doing philosophy, Rebecca most enjoys spending time with her husband and son (born December 2012), or dabbling in interior design, literature, and theater.
