Guido Kreis received his PhD from Heidelberg University in 1999, and his Habilitation from Bonn University in 2014. He was previously employed at the Departments of Philosophy at Heidelberg (1996-2003), Bonn (2003-2015), and RWTH Aachen University (2015-16). His research focuses on German Idealism, with an emphasis on metaphysics and epistemology, and a strong commitment both to exploring the heritage of Kant and Hegel in 20th century philosophy, and to reconstructing their philosophy in the context of contemporary philosophy, including the analytic tradition. He has co-organised the International Joint Research Project “Concepts of Rationality: Challenges of Reason in a Cross-Cultural Perspective” of Bonn University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

His publications include Cassirer und die Formen des Geistes (“Cassirer and the Forms of Spirit”, Berlin 2010), Negative Dialektik des Unendlichen: Kant, Hegel, Cantor (“Negative Dialectics of the Infinite: Kant, Hegel, Cantor”, Berlin 2015), Gottesbeweise: von Anselm bis Gödel (“Arguments for the existence of God: from Anselm to Goedel”, Berlin 2011, co-ed. with J. Bromand), Was sich nicht sagen laesst (“What We Cannot Speak About”, co-ed. with J. Bromand, Berlin 2010), as well as an edition of Cassirer’s writings on Rousseau (Berlin 2012). A volume on Gotteswiderlegungen (“Arguments against the Existence of God”, co-ed. with J. Bromand) is forthcoming in 2017.
