Professor of Philosophy, Mount Holyoke College

Welcome to my website!  

I will be teaching an NEH Summer Seminar for School Teachers in the summer of 2016.  For information click here.

I recently curated an exhibition Mel Bochner: Illustrating Philosophy at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum.  To see a discussion between Mel and me, click here.  The exhibition catalogue will be available very soon.  Check back for details.

The two areas in which I am pursuing active research are philosophy for children and philosophy of film. 

Check out my philosophy for children course and website, as well as the recent film about it, Big Ideas for Little Kids.
