Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
My interest in philosophy comes from my religious background - Catholic - and so involved Thomism of the Gilsonian stripe. I have since pursued Hermeneutic Phenomenology (specifically that of Paul Ricouer) and the Pragmatism of CS Peirce. My involvement in public education leads me to turn my mind to questions of what is the general good, and to criticism of the "values" and institutions of our society. My hope is to engage in ongoing conversation about reality and it's public dimension.
