Biography

I have the Ph. D. in philosophy and have published a book and 60+ articles in such professional journals as Analysis, Dialectica, Nous, Ratio, and The Monist. A recovering academician, I taught philosophy at various universities in the USA and abroad before abandoning a tenured position to live the eremitic life of the independent philosopher in the Sonoran desert. Following an ancient tradition, I entered upon a life of creative leisure, dedicated to serious pursuits under the guiding ideal of otium liberale, of cultured retirement, free of the constraints of the academic marketplace.
