Fairly Recent Happenings:
Ben McGraw is a hard-working scholar. He and I edited three books recently, with a fourth on the way:
- Philosophical Approaches to the Devil (Routledge Phil of Religion series, 2016)
- The Concept of Hell (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015)
- The Problem of Evil: New Philosophical Directions (Rowman & Littlefield, 2015)
- Demonology from a Philosophical Perspective (Routledge, 2017)
My edited book, 1001 Ideas That Changed the Way We Think, came out in late 2013 through Simon & Schuster (and several other publishing houses throughout the world). The British cover through Octopus Publishing Group in London is pretty neat, too. It has been translated into numerous languages. The Preface is written by the world-famous philosopher and bioethicist, Art Caplan. You can also read the goodreads reviews.
I edited 1001 Quotations To Enlighten, Entertain, and Inspire, which is out now.
The 2nd edition of my logic text with Jamie Watson (another hard-working scholar), Critical Thinking: An Introduction to Reasoning Well, is now available.
I am a trained philosopher currently teaching in-class and online philosophy, humanities, and world religions courses as an adjunct at several schools. I would like to get back into academia as a full-time professor; though, I have been teaching and publishing as if I had a full-time professorship, as my CV demonstrates.
My specializations, concentrations, and general interests include:
I have done a lot of academic writing, editing, technical writing, researching, teaching, presenting, and publishing in the areas mentioned above, and in other areas, too.
I am a member of the American Philosophical Association, the Society for Modern Philosophy, the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science, and the Philosophy of Science Association.
