What discussion topics do you find most interesting?

My primary interests in philosophy are ethics (bioethics, environmental ethics), history of thought, philosophy of mind (particularly consciousness), existentialism. origins of life, and political philosophy. The area where I have least interest is in Formal Logic.

A few examples of philosophical questions include: [who am I?, what am I?, what should I do?, what is the best form of government?, what is justice?, what is truth?, what is beauty?--and how do I know it?] What questions do you want to explore?

All philosophical questions and all topics of philosophical interest are fair game from my perspective. I have less interest within the branch of philosophy known as Formal Logic. Of particular interest is a broader, deeper understanding of the universe that can account for science, philosophy, and theology.


I have broad interests in humanity and the human condition. My undergraduate degrees include psychology and philosophy; my graduate work includes philosophy, theology, and library science. I'm a lover of books, and I teach at a graduate school.
