Welcome to my SJSU web page.
I look forward to teaching in Spring 2014. I hope you will join me in Moral Philosophy. If you are registered for my course(s) you will be in SJSU Canvas. See the syllabus and Schedule there.
We live in interesting times. Whether we discuss moral responsibility in social issues or business; or, we debate God's existence, we are discussing and debating ideas. Ideas rule the world.
I hope to see you!

“There is a dumbing down that's intrinsic to middlebrow efforts. Real scholarship, criticism, or commentary is slow, detailed, and difficult, even in the hands of the clearest teacher or smoothest writer, and very few of us are those. Middlebrow culture offers lists, hooks, easy handles, formulas in the place of getting to know a text, working through a problem, mastering a difficult philosophic chain of reasoning."
