Biography

Wendy Lynne Lee is professor of philosophy at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania where she has taught for over 25 years. Her primary objectives have long been to realize a philosophically informed life both professionally, as a public intellectual, and as a citizen dissident. She is deeply committed to teaching, writing, and a life as an engaged feminist, particularly in the environmental movement as a writer, researcher, and amateur photographer. Lee has published about 40 scholarly essays in her areas of expertise--philosophy of language (particularly later Wittgenstein), philosophy of mind/brain, feminist theory, theory of sexual identity, post-Marxian theory, nonhuman animal welfare, ecological aesthetics, aesthetic phenomenology, and philosophy of ecology. She was a founding member of the Shale Justice Coalition, ran for Lt. Governor on the Pennsylvania Green Party 2014 ticket, and was vice president of the National Community Rights Network (CELDF). She writes an incendiary current issues blog called The Wrench. Her most recent book is "Eco-Nihilism: The Philosophical Geopolitics of the Climate Change Apocalypse," Lexington Press. She is now hard at work drafting "This is Environmental Ethics" for Blackwell, and completing her first Trumpian era scholarly essay tentatively titled "The New Fascism: The Retrofit of Karl Marx in the Quest for the Fully Capitalized Planet.
