My name is Jeff. “Snag” was a nickname I was given in my youth and in some circles it still sticks. But for all intensive purposes I go by Jeff.
I wouldn’t say I’m a professional philosopher at all. I merely got my undergraduate degree in Philosophy. In my earlier days I was drawn to Schopenhauer and actually wrote a fairly decent paper on the relationships between Schopenhauer and Thomas Hardy that one of these days I might find and actually put online. I had it online sometime ago and a google search revealed a couple of links to it back when it was active; but, not anymore.
In my later years I got more drawn to social philosophy. Specifically racism and white skin privilege.
I’m a single parent and while I am certainly not working on Sundays generally my son is with me and our schedule does stay fairly busy on weekends.

Hello Snag -
(Do you go by "Snag"? There was no signature on the email)
Welcome to Plato's Cave! We're glad to have a professional philosopher join the group. We only have one other member with a degree in Philosophy - the group is mostly made up of engineers, mathematicians, and various other professions. One thing we all have in common is curiousity about everything, and a desire to continously add to our store of knowledge.
I hope Sunday afternoons are convenient for you - we'll start meeting twice a month from now on and meetings generally last from 2-4pm. If you can't join us, I hoipe you'll feel free to participate via the message boards.
Meanwhile, what sort of topics would you like the group to discuss? Do you have any favorite philosophers? Not having a formal training in philosophy myself, I rely heavily on group input to decide on the agenda.
I look forward to meeting you - thanks for joining!
Love, Peace, Happiness
Four out of five voices in my head say I'm sane.
