What areas of philosophy interest you the most?

Good question. I have the most experience in moral philosophy and legal theory, but I am also of the mind that those two areas do not stand alone and must address questions of epistemology and metaphysics. I am probably most amenable to the American pragmatists (and at times appreciate a little Hegel).

How did you become interested in philosophy?

I was probably become interested in high school, when I first read Plato. Although my interest waned a bit, it was re-ignited in law school. After I received my JD, I went to get a Masters in Philosophy and even though I now practice law in the City, I have not given up on philosophy.

Introduction

I am a lawyer in New York with a Masters in Philosophy who misses the debate and conversations.
