Teaching Associate Professor, Philosophy
What are your research areas of interest?
My research interests include exploring the points of intersection between ethics and logic; the work of Plato, Nietzsche and Wittgenstein; the concept of thinking and speaking, from logical, psychological and ethical perspectives; the mind as it manifests itself in individuals and peoples; and conceptual issues shared between logic and mathematics.
What are some of the courses you are currently teaching?
I currently teach Science and Metaphysics, Foundations of Ethics, Introduction to Philosophy of Science, and CAL 105, which is part of the Freshman Experience.
What can students expect when they take a class with you?
I try to make discussions freewheeling, and fun, while always keeping a clear view of the issue under discussion. Students who are active participants in the classroom find the work easier and more interesting.
What do you like to do when you're not teaching?
While not teaching I listen to music, try to play my guitar, go hiking, read books, spend time with my children, and generally look to enjoy life's innocent pleasures.
