Professor of Philosophy
In my quarter century as a philosophy professor I’ve been exposed to much wisdom. I try to understand it, and I want to share what I have found. Being married twenty-five years and raising six children has also brought a few hard-to-see things to light. I have known the struggles of being a husband, father, friend, employee, and citizen in very confusing times. The travails of the household—as experienced by husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, children, and others—especially consume my attention and are close to my heart. The way forward is not easy, but we can search for it and travel it, together. My search is for refreshing and revitalizing waters from a good place. Peaceful yet challenging, silent but powerful, old as the hills and exactly what we need today. I want to reconnect with what we already know, or at least that we can know. It’s both deep within us, and it’s out there. We need to find it, and I know we can. My goal is a more fully human life, in its many facets, lived together in community and in life-giving relationships. I hope we can work toward this together.
