At the ancient Agora in Athens

I currently teach Philosophy at Baruch College (CUNY). This is my personal website and is, along with a great many things, a work in progress.

My primary area of research interest is Ethics. I am also interested in Existentialism, Bayesianism, the Monty Hall Problem, Animal Rights & Welfare, Nietzsche, Aesthetics, Political Philosophy, Environmental Ethics, and – naturally – Philosophy of Science & Technology. Those are just the first few off a list that extends to – essentially – all things in, of, and about this world.

In lieu of trying to create my own pages here to satisfy the various functions that I envision should be part of a personal website, instead I have chosen to embrace the principle of the division of labor. I therefore use different free social media services to express the many ways in which I am me. Please connect with me on all, none or one (but never two…), as you see fit. These are:


  • Academia.edu – Academic professional network. A resource to use to follow the publications and work of contemporary scholars.
  • Google+ – I’m still trying to decipher this one’s usefulness which means it is currently in the pre-useful stage.
  • LinkedIn – Professional network of colleagues, friends and students.


Lastly, if you have been a student of mine, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line and let me know what good things you are up to. Or, if you feel so compelled, what bad things you are up to – though I hope not much of that.

Best regards to all and thanks for visiting.
