About the Author

Author Info

Emma Søndergaard Jensen is the creator of the Emma-ism Philosophy podcast. She is a Candidate for a B.A. in Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. Emma is interested in the philosophy of disability --specifically, in Deaf epistemology. Emma recently published a philosophy book ("How to Excel in Undergraduate Philosophy"), which was named the #1 New Release in Philosophy Reference on Amazon for the two weeks after its release. She also hosts a regular philosophy podcast that includes over 60 episodes that tie current events with philosophical theories and has also incorporated 12 "how-to" philosophy Youtube video tutorials. Emma enjoys tutoring her peers in philosophy as a Writing Fellow in the Marks Family Center for Excellence in Writing and is excited to continue working more closely with philosophy students as a Learning Assistant for Bioethics with the UPenn Philosophy Department this upcoming fall. Inspired by her work in the Center, she wrote her book and continues her podcast with the aim of providing an undergraduate student's perspective on philosophical study that may be useful to other undergraduates who are looking for motivation to pursue the major or guidance on how to navigate philosophy classes.
