Taylor Carman is an American philosopher. He is Professor of Philosophy at Barnard College, Columbia University.

Philosophy[edit]

Carman's main areas of interest are in the philosophy of Martin Heidegger and in phenomenology. He is the author of Heidegger’s Analytic: Interpretation, Discourse, and Authenticity in Heidegger's Being and Time (2003) and Merleau-Ponty (2008), and the editor of The Cambridge Companion to Merleau-Ponty (2005). He is also co-editor of a philosophy series with Ashgate Publishing called "Intersection: Continental and Analytic Philosophy".

Hubert Dreyfus considers Carman to be one of the leading contemporary authorities on Heidegger and on Heidegger's concept of death in particular.[1] Carman was featured, along with Hubert Dreyfus, Charles Taylor, Albert Borgmann, and Sean Kelly, in the documentary Being in the World (2010), which explores the phenomenology of everyday life.[2]
