Welcome to my SJSU web page. I look forward to teaching in FALL 2014. I hope you will join me in Medical ethics, Intro to philosophy, or Professional and Business Ethics. If you are registered for my course(s) you will be in SJSU Canvas. The syllabus and schedule will be posted in late August. 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!

"It doesn't bother me that you are lying to me, but it offends me that you think I believe you." -----From a wise Croatian on the treatment of the middle and lower classes. Maybe we have something to learn from people in other countries who have had systems of power treat them as 'less than.'
