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.

I have numerous publications, including two books, The Ethics of Ontology and Aristotle on the Nature of Truth; I work in Ancient Greek Philosophy, contemporary Continental Philosophy, and #DigitalHumanities.

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.

Education
  • Graduate Faculty, The New School for Social Research
    Philosophy, 1991 - 1998
  • Wittenberg University
    Philosophy, Political Science, 1987 - 1991

Noticing Beauty #DayOfDH

One of the ways I use digital media to mediate my relationship with the world is by giving myself the assignment of taking a picture a day of one beautiful thing encountered in my quotidian life. Here are the image 212 from my 365 in 2013 project:
