Steven Nadler is the William H. Hay II Professor of Philosophy and Evjue-Bascom Professor in Humanities, and (from 2004-2009) Max and Frieda Weinstein-Bascom Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

Nadler received his PhD from Columbia University in 1986. His research focus since then has been devoted to the study of philosophy in the seventeenth century, including Descartes and Cartesian philosophy, Spinoza, and Leibniz. His research also includes antecedents of aspects of early modern thought in medieval Latin philosophy and (especially with respect to Spinoza) medieval Jewish philosophy.

He has taught at the University of Wisconsin–Madison since 1988, and was a visiting professor of philosophy at Stanford University, the University of Chicago, and the Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales in Paris. In 2008 he held the Spinoza Chair at the University of Amsterdam. Nadler was also a speaker at the Beyond Belief symposium on November 2006. In April, 2015, he was a Scholar in Residence at the American Academy in Rome.
