Preferred: (408) 924-4470
Tuesdays and Wednesdays 1 to 3.
Doctor of Philosophy, Univ Of Cal-Berkeley, 1975
I have a B. A. in Music and a Ph. D. in Philosophy, both from U. C. Berkeley. I
started teaching in the Philosophy Department at San Jose State University in 1986.
Before that time I worked several years playing jazz piano in New York City while
teaching philosophy part-time at the New School for Social Research.
I have published two books and many articles. One book is on the philosophy of Merleau-Ponty,
a second is a phenomenological treatment of love and hate. Journal articles are on
topics in Aristotelian philosophy, phenomenology, philosophy of music, deconstruction
and the philosophy of economics.
I count myself very lucky indeed because I've been able to work all of my life in
fields that I love. I thank San Jose State and its students for currently allowing
me to do so.
