Sarah Davis is a professor at St. John’s College, a Great Books program where faculty rotate through teaching the entire curriculum—Euclidian Geometry, Ancient Greek, Philosophy, Literature and Music. Sarah did her undergraduate work in Philosophy and Anthropology at Harvard University and received her PhD in Cultural Anthropology from Emory University.
She spent two years doing dissertation field research on the French island of Corsica, where she studied the riacquistu, a militant movement devoted to the revitalization of traditional Corsican culture. Her research interprets local dissatisfaction with the riacquistu in light of Heidegger’s critique of Western metaphysics. She lives with her husband and two sons in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
