Students may have seen that I will be teaching a PHIL 4900 Special Topics Seminar this spring (MWF 1:30-2:20). The course will be geared to philosophy majors and will be run as a seminar. Our topic will be Aristotle. I am still sorting out the specific readings, but I expect we will read selections from Aristotle’s Metaphysics, Physics, Ethics, and Politics.
* Modification: I have ordered the Metaphysics, Physics, Nicomachean Ethics, and De Anima (On the Soul). *
Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.

This looks really good. I hope I am in a position to participate.
I have been meaning to talk to you about Kiekegaard’s analysis of “love seeketh not her own” he seems to have a relative conception of love absolutely seeking its own at the most fundamental level.
