SOUTH BEND, IN, September 23, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Fred R. Dallmayr, PhD, has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Having accrued almost 60 years of experience in his chosen profession, Dr. Dallmayr has held the distinguished title of a Packey J. Dee professor of political science and philosophy at the University of Notre Dame since 1978. He has further excelled as a professor at Purdue University since 1968, where he had previously flourished as an assistant professor, an associate professor, and the head of the department of political science. A member of the NDEA Civics Institute in 1967, Dr. Dallmayr additionally served as a Werner Marx visiting professor of philosophy at the New School for Social Research in New York. Several times between 1965 and 1986 he was also a visiting professor at the University of Hamburg in Germany. In addition, he was a professor at the University of Georgia from 1971 to 1973 and a visiting professor at Duke University in 1966.
Dr. Dallmayr began his career in the field as an instructor at Duke University in 1961. He subsequently worked as an instructor and assistant professor of political science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee from 1961 to 1963. To remain aware of developments in his field, he has been an avid member of such organizations as the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy, for which he was the president from 2004 to 2005. The chair of the political philosophy section of the International Political Science Association between 2002 and 2004, Dr. Dallmayr has also been affiliated with the American Political Science Association, the International Studies Association, the Conference for the Study of Political Thought, and the American Political Science Association, among others.
Before embarking upon his professional journey, Dr. Dallmayr pursued a formal education in his own right at the University of Munich, from which he obtained a Doctor of Jurisprudence in 1955. He later earned a Master of Arts at South Illinois University in 1956. Dr. Dallmayr concluded his academic efforts with a Doctor of Philosophy in political science from Duke University in 1960.
A member of the honorable society of Phi Beta Kappa, Dr. Dallmayr has attained numerous accolades and recognitions for his stupendous body of academic work. In particular, he accepted a Distinguished Scholar Award from the International Studies Association in 2003, and received a Fulbright research grant in India between 1991 and 1992. Moreover, Dr. Dallmayr was presented with a fellowship in independent study and research through the National Endowment of the Humanities from 1978 to 1979. Likewise, Dr. Dallmayr was recognized as the chairperson of the Leo Strauss Award Committee of the American Political Science Association in order to select the best dissertation in political theory written during 1976 and 1977.
Dr. Dallmayr was inspired to become an educator and philosopher partially due to his horrific experiences during the Second World War, which saw his life become uprooted by the rampant barbarism and destruction wrought by the war. His older brother, in particular, never returned from the Eastern Front during Germany's disastrous invasion of the Soviet Union. These experiences propelled Dr. Dallmayr into his career in academia, and to pursue a field of study where he could teach the meaning and philosophy of politics, and reinforce the idea that politics is not merely about power but about justice and peace.
Noteworthy for his presence in the realm of political philosophy, Dr. Dallmayr is particularly interested in phenomenology, hermeneutics, deconstruction, intercultural philosophy, and democratic theory. In regards to the latter, he views the current conceptualization of "democracy" in Western countries as little more than a veil through which self-interest and de-regulatory economic structures hold supreme authority, whereas true democracy is expressed as popular self-rule in which civic education, ethical cultivation, and self-transformation hold sway. Dr. Dallmayr has tried his whole life to promote the inherent goodness of people, and hopes that his work in philosophy proves influential beyond his years.
