I suppose there’s some truth to the notion that I teach the 13th and 14th grades. I teach philosophy at a community college. Some semesters I teach 5 sections with 50 students each, thus the saying that I feel as if I teach in the philosophy factory.
I’m a recent Ph.D. in philosophy. My dissertation is on the ethics of warfare and I teach a lot of logic and ethics courses. I have two cats and no kids. I also have tenure and no publishing expectations, so suddenly I have more time to play and make new friends— or, in the case of Andy, revive old friendships. I’m in a fun time of my life, in which I have a bit of wisdom and experience to see that the world is a kind of bizarre place and I have the time / freedom to explore that bizarre place. I also have a good friend willing to join me on that journey, thus this blog.
