Life Story & Timeline

2014

Leiter’s scholarly writings have been in two main areas—legal philosophy and Continental philosophy—although he has also written about metaethics, religious liberty, and other topics. Philosophical naturalism has been a major theme in both contexts.

In 2014, when student members of the University College London Union Council informed the “Nietzsche Club” that it could no longer declare an affiliation with the school, because the club was promoting “far-right” and “fascist” ideologies, Leiter first defended the club, saying Nietzsche was not a fascist, but later noted that if the club is a front for a fascist group, then it’s a shame that Nietzsche was smeared as a fascist in the discussion.

In response, Leiter appointed a co-editor for the 2014 report Berit Brogaard, a philosophy professor at the University of Miami and agreed to step down as editor after its publication. Leiter dismissed the criticisms as coming from people whose organizations had received a poor ranking, or from feminists upset with his stance in favor of due process for men accused of sexual harassment. He subsequently retained a lawyer to sue the organizers of the 2014 protest for defamation.

2013

Leiter’s most recent book, Why Tolerate Religion?, published by Princeton University Press, has proved controversial. The political philosopher John Gray wrote, “A model of clarity and rigour and at points strikingly original, this is a book that anyone who thinks seriously about religion, ethics and politics will benefit from reading.” Christopher L. Eisgruber, the President of Princeton University, said. “Every reader will learn something from this remarkable book, and, beginning now, every serious scholar of religious toleration will have to contend with Leiter’s bold claims.” By contrast, the website of the conservative Family Research Council said the book was “one of the most troubling and intellectually discreditable books by a serious American scholar in some time.” The book was named an “Outstanding Academic Title” by Choice in 2013.

2011

Author Walter K. Olson described Leiter as “left-leaning” in his book Schools for Misrule: Legal Academia and an Overlawyered America (Encounter Books, 2011). and Leiter himself has professed sympathy for Marx, stating in an interview that, “On two central issues, Marx was far more right than any of his critics: first, that the long-term tendency of capitalist societies is towards immiseration of the majority (the post-WWII illusion of upward mobility for the “middle classes” will soon be revealed for the anomaly it was); and second, that capitalist societies produce moral and political ideologies that serve to justify the dominance of the capitalist class.”

2007

In legal philosophy, Leiter has offered a reinterpretation of American Legal Realism as embodying a prescient philosophical naturalism and a defense of what he called “naturalized jurisprudence” in his book Naturalizing Jurisprudence: Essays on American Legal Realism and Naturalism in Legal Philosophy (Oxford University Press, 2007). Upon publication, Jeremy Horder wrote that the “book will confirm Brian Leiter ‘s place in the front rank of legal theorists in the world today.” Leiter also wrote the entry on “Naturalism in Legal Philosophy” for the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. On his view, “philosophers generally should aim to unpack the ‘concepts that have been vindicated by their role in successful explanation and prediction of empirical phenomena'” and thus should “‘take seriously the…social scientific literature on law…to see what concept of law figures in the most powerful explanatory and predictive models of legal phenomena such as judicial behavior.’ This methodological view, however, raises questions about why the legal philosopher should study only judicial behavior and not something else. More generally, the naturalist owes an account of what features of law are most in need of explication and why.”

2003

The PGR was described by David L. Kirp in a 2003 New York Times op-ed as “the bible for prospective [philosophy] graduate students.” George Yancy, in Reframing the Practice of Philosophy: Bodies of Color, Bodies of Knowledge (SUNY Press, 2012), opined that Philosophical Gourmet Report ranking: “is, of course, very controversial. However, as is often pointed out, there is no real alternative.” Carlin Romano, in America the Philosophical (Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, 2013), referred to the PGR rankings as “often-criticized” and “biased towards mainstream analytic departments” although it covers Continental philosophy as well.

Leiter is a prolific blogger, running three blogs, one on philosophy (and political commentary), one on law, and one on Nietzsche. Leiter’s philosophy blog includes both professional news and polemics, for example, critiques of proponents of intelligent design, and the 2003 Invasion of Iraq. He has also written critiques of journalists and philosophers, including Romano, Thomas Nagel, Leon Wieseltier, and Paul Campos. He is known for his “combative tactics on his blogs and social media.”

2002

Leiter is also a scholar of Continental philosophy, and is co-editor with Michael E. Rosen of The Oxford Handbook of Continental Philosophy. He has written a considerable amount on the philosophical work of Friedrich Nietzsche, including an article for the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. In particular, Leiter defended a reading of Nietzsche as a philosophical naturalist in his Nietzsche on Morality (London: Routledge, 2002) and in later papers, including one with Joshua Knobe on “The Case for Nietzschean Moral Psychology” in Nietzsche and Morality (Oxford University Press, 2007).

In 2002, nearly 300 philosophers signed an open letter calling on Leiter to stop producing the PGR. In fall 2014, over 600 philosophers signed a petition to boycott the PGR organized by some philosophers at University of British Columbia to protest what they called a “derogatory and intimidating” e-mail sent by Leiter to one of their colleagues. A majority of the Advisory Board of the PGR (30 of the 54 members) thought it best that he relinquish control over the Report’s management.

2000

Leiter has been a visiting professor of law or philosophy at Yale Law School, University College London, University of Chicago Law School, University of Paris X-Nanterre, University of California, San Diego, and Oxford University.

He has also been a visiting professor at universities in the United States and Europe, including Yale University and Oxford University.

Leiter was also the founder and for 25 years the editor of the Philosophical Gourmet Report (“PGR”), an influential but also controversial ranking of philosophy PhD programs in the English-speaking world. After repeated protests, one in 2002 and one in 2014, Leiter retired and turned over editorship of the PGR to Berit Brogaard, a philosopher at the University of Miami, and Christopher Pynes, a philosopher at Western Illinois University.

Leiter taught for two years at the University of San Diego School of Law, and was a visiting assistant professor of philosophy at the University of California, San Diego., before joining the faculty at the University of Texas School of Law in 1995, where he taught until 2008. At Texas, Leiter was founder and Director of the Law and Philosophy Program. In 2008, Leiter moved to the University of Chicago, where he is now Karl N. Llewellyn Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of Chicago Law School, and founder of Chicago’s Center for Law, Philosophy & Human Values.
