Preferred: (408) 924-4471
Tuesday and Thursday 12 Noon to 1:00 p.m. and by appointment
Welcome to my SJSU web page. I look forward to teaching FALL 2015. I hope you will join me in Moral Issues or Professional and Business Ethics or Philosophy of the Person. If you are registered for my course(s) you will be in SJSU Canvas. The syllabus, schedule, films, handouts, and links will be posted 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!
