I received my Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Kentucky.  My research is in ancient philosophy, and particularly metaphysical and epistemological issues in Plato, the Presocratics, and Aristotle.  I am also interested in all eras of the history of philosophy, including medieval philosophy, German idealism, and phenomenology.  As an instructor, I have taught courses on logic, ethics, aesthetics, socio-political philosophy, the philosophy of religion, and numerous other subjects.
