This fall we will see many more offerings in Philosophy than we have had in recent years, due mainly to the return/addition of more teaching faculty.
Gordon Steinhoff will return from his 09-10 sabbatical, and will resume teaching his courses in logic, metaphysics, and East Asian Philosophy.
Harrison Kleiner has been hired as a Lecturer, and will be teaching Ethics and Social Ethics, as well as distance ed sections of Social Ethics and Business Ethics. He also will be teaching a section of USU 1320 (Civilization: Humanities). We’re not sure yet exactly what Kleiner will be teaching in the spring, but his assignment is sure to include the highly-anticipated Contemporary European Philosophy. Also note that Kleiner is moving office, from the basement of Main to Main 341A.
Gary McGonagill will also be joining our faculty as a Lecturer this fall from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. Dr. McGonagill’s Ph.D is in Classics from Harvard, and he will be teaching our Ancient Philosophy course, as well as some sections of Intro to Philosophy and yet another section of USU 1320. His work has focused on the intersections of ancient Greek philosophy with early Christianity. McGonagill will also offer a seminar course in the spring, on a topic of his own devising.
Huenemann has been appointed an Associate Dean in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, so he will only be teaching one course each term next year, but he will be generally available for advising, consultation, and sarcastic skepticism.
