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.
