What is old is new again. It is very interesting to see how our general education reform process at Penn State has brought us full circle back to our very first multi-disciplinary general education course: International Understanding 300.
By the summer of 1954, the students at Penn State had grown impatient. The world had settled into a Cold War, the nuclear arms race threatened total annihilation, and the students felt unprepared t...

This does suggest that an expanded view of what successful employment for Humanities PhDs looks like is important. However, it would be interesting to know how many of these graduates are using the research skills they developed in their PhD programs in their work.

Some thoughts on the place of colleges of liberal arts and sciences in major land grant universities.
At the beginning of the Physics, Aristotle captures something of the essence of the liberal arts and sciences as an endeavor. This path from the surface of things to a deeper understanding of their...

Could a richer understanding of collegiality inform our development of a structure that incentivizes and rewards members of the community for adopting habits of scholarly collaboration? 
The Public Philosophy Journal project has been animated from the beginning by the attempt to cultivate excellent habits of scholarly communication in a digital age. To do so will require finding wa...

Story
Tagline
Husband, Father, Professor of Philosophy and Classics, Associate Dean
Introduction
Husband, Father, Associate Dean for Graduate and Undergraduate Education and Professor of Philosophy and Classics in the College of the Liberal Arts at The Pennsylvania State University.

My work focuses on Ancient Greek Philosophy, contemporary Continental Philosophy, and #DigitalHumanities, and digital scholarly communication. I have published three books, The Ethics of Ontology, Aristotle on the Nature of Truth, and most recently, an enhanced digital book published by Cambridge University Press entitled Socratic and Platonic Political Philosophy

I have been using social media technology to pursue philosophical research and to cultivate community around my scholarly, administrative and educational values.

The most important thing about me, though, is that I am a husband and a father of two awesome girls.  I blog and post about my life with them too.
