    I’m a Yooper native teaching philosophy in Stephenville, TX, the Cowboy Capital of the World.  The courses I offer most frequently are Intro to Philosophy and Ethics in the Professions.  I’m developing a course on environmental ethics to be taught here at Tarleton in Spring 2018. My CV and links to some of my work are available at Philpapers.

    I have a chapter (“Kierkegaard and Augustine on Time”) in the 2017 Lexington Books volume on Augustine and Kierkegaard. While at Baylor I was invited to write on the unlikely topic of Kierkegaard and going on vacation for their publication Christian Reflection: A Series in Faith and Ethics.  As part of the Conyers Scholars Program I contributed a chapter on George Marsden’s reading of William James to an anthology on Christian Faith and University Life. Here’s my book review of Peder Jothen’s Kierkegaard, Aesthetics, and Selfhood: The Art of Subjectivity:


    I’m working on a paper on Kierkegaard and moral particularism for The Kierkegaardian Mind (Routledge) and a book review of Jeff Hanson’s Kierkegaard and the Life of Faith: The Aesthetic, the Ethical, and the Religious in “Fear and Trembling” for the Heythrop Journal. Though I was unable to attend due to weather, the text of my SAAP at the Eastern APA presentation on Jamesian and existentialist themes in Moby Dick is available here.
