Profile

I am the Chairperson of Montclair State's Department of Philosophy: http://www.montclair.edu/philosophy

My summer 2020 office hours are m2–3, w12–1, th1–3, and by appointment. (a) ring 973.655.7417; (b) email <roholtt@montclair.edu>; (c) email me to request a Zoom video-conference appointment.

My research is phenomenology——philosophy of technology, philosophy of art.

I teach Continental Philosophy, Philosophy of Technology, Philosophy of Art, and Introduction to Philosophy. I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University; my B.A. from the University of Minnesota.

My Writing:
• In the hopper: The Distracted Self: A Phenomenology of Smartphones — a monograph, under contract with Bloomsbury Academic (2021).
• In the hopper: “Live Performance as a Focal Practice” — a chapter for The Oxford Handbook on the Phenomenology of Music (2022). (This chapter will draw upon Albert Borgmann’s philosophy of technology—specifically his concepts of focal practices and focal things—to make sense of the precariousness and meaningfulness of live musical performance.)
• “Being-with Smartphones,” forthcoming in Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology
• "On the Divide: Analytic and Continental Philosophy of Music” (Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism 75, 2017); this article is one of the top-downloaded articles in this journal's recent publication history.
• Groove: A Phenomenology of Rhythmic Nuance (Bloomsbury Academic, 2014);
• Key Terms in Philosophy of Art (Bloomsbury Academic, 2013);
• "In Praise of Ambiguity: Musical Subtlety and Merleau-Ponty" (Contemporary Aesthetics 11, 2013);
• “Philosophy of Music” (in The Grove Dictionary of American Music, 2nd edn, 2013 — also at Grove Music Online, Oxford Music Online);
• "Continental Philosophy and Music" (in The Routledge Companion to Philosophy and Music, 2011);
• "*Musical* Musical Nuance," (Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism 68, 2010);
• "Musical Experience" (in The Oxford Companion to Consciousness, 2009 — also at Oxford Reference Online).
