Search tools for philosophy on the internet can be found in the Research Center. Under Course Info there are helpful guides to writing and reading about philosophy as well as a comprehensive Glossary of Terms. And visit the Academic Links section to find other great philosophy related resources.

Academics, you may also find the Research Center useful. Or visit the Published Works section to review my articles. Feel free to correspond, I've made Contact Info readily available.

For the curious, my Curriculum Vitae is on-line to read or print.
