Areas of Academic Interest:
My major research interest is in the nature of the human being and the exploration of that nature through a philosophical analysis of the concept of life. In particular, I am interested in the problem of language and the role that language plays in human life. What is the nature of language, and how does it relate to the structure of the human being? Recently, I have written on issues in education and communication, especially as these relate to the notion of the practical in the early work of Martin Heidegger. My research focuses primarily on the philosophy of Heidegger, his interpretations of ancient philosophy, hermeneutics, and Contemporary European thought. I teach Contemporary philosophy, political theory, ethics, Aristotelian logic, and Classical American philosophy. Read more.
