My ancient Greek philosophy scholarship explores the intersection of ethics, art and emotion; the dramatic and educational aspects of Plato’s dialogues; and ‘purpose’ or ‘telos’ in Aristotle’s natural philosophy.
My latest scholarly work is a contribution to a new English translation and interpretation of Aristotle’s “On the Progression of Animals
,” published by Cambridge University Press.
I have also published a philosophical adventure memoir, “Pedaling Home
,” about my experience bicycle racing the entire length of the Arizona Trail, from Mexico to Utah.
