What areas of philosophy are you most interested in?

Continental philosophy, moral philosophy, philosophy of religion, socio-political philosophy, existential philosophy, philosophy of science, and philosophy of mind.

Have you written or are you writing or do you intend to write any particular philosophical work?

"An Atheist Defends Religion: Why Humanity Is Better Off with Religion than without It" (Alpha/Penguin 2009) and I am developing a work (that perhaps may never be published) tentatively titled, "The Dialectics of Human Existence: The Human Situation (Where We Are and How We Got Here) and The Human Enterprise (Where We're Going and How to Get There)."

Who are your most important and influential philosophical "heroes"?

Hegel stands out for his thinking on dialectics, plus William James, Henri Bergson, Whitehead, Nietzsche and a number of "thinkers" from other, related disciplines (Ernest Becker, Rollo May and Erich Fromm are early intellectual "heroes").
