Dr. Patrick Eldridge is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John. He obtained his PhD at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) after having obtained his MA and MPhil there. He completed his BHum and BA at Carleton University. Before joining the Humanities and Languages department at UNB Saint John Dr. Eldridge was also a visiting researcher at the University of Oregon.

Dr. Eldridge specializes in Phenomenology and Post-Kantian European Philosophy. His dissertation “Having a Past and Being a Past: Husserl’s Phenomenology of Remembrance” reconstructs Husserl’s account of how memory is a kind of time-consciousness that supports an intentional (i.e. object-oriented) consciousness. Dr. Eldridge has published articles in Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences and The International Journal of Philosophical Studies, and has translated numerous philosophical essays and letters from French and German into English. His ongoing research concerns theoretical problems in accounts of collective memory as well as the history of the phenomenological movement.
