As I begin my tenure as Dean of the College of Arts and Letters at Michigan State University I find myself thinking of these lines adapted from Deuteronomy 6:10-12 by Peter Raible: "We build on fou...

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...

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...

Story

Husband, Father, Professor of Philosophy, Dean of The College of Arts and Letters at MSU
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.
