What is your background in Philosophy? Did you major or minor in it? Take only one or two introductory courses? Are basically self-taught?

I took a few philosophy classes as an undergrad and several as a graduate student, mostly in philosophy of science, epistemology, and early modern philosophy, but also a few in ethics. I've also done a little bit of philosophy tutoring.

What are your philosophical interests and favorite writers?

I probably enjoy classical pragmatism most but have found value and things of interest in most of the philosophy I've read. Some authors I enjoyed include Leibniz, Hume, Peirce, Locke, Berkeley, Dewey, Feyerabend, Aristotle, Hacking, Popper, and Brandom. Basically I'd be happy to read just about anyone as long as there's a good discussion around it.


I recently moved back to the DC area after 3 years in Seattle.
