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 minored in philosophy in graduate school.

What are your philosophical interests and favorite writers?

My major interest is ethics. Secondary ones include epistemology, logic, the French Enlightenment, and 19th century German philosophy. My favorite writers are Hegel, Feuerbach, and Sartre; if aphorisms are viewed as philosophy, then I would include La Rochefoucauld and William Blake.


I am the organizer of this group and have lead two others, one devoted to existentialism and the other to learning French. I have a Ph.D. in English and taught for several years before becoming a librarian.
