New book on peace and ecology by Andrew Fiala

Congratulations to Andrew Fiala on his latest book The Peace of Nature and The Nature of Peace. Among the excellent chapters I contributed two: "Return to Earth: A New Natural Philosophy?" where I look at Schweitzer, Daoism and somatic practice, and "The Beloved Community: A Neo-Aristotelian Perspective," looking at King's understanding of love and community. Both my chapters began life as presidential addresses at Concerned Philosophers for Peace.

Spring 2014 Syllabi

Welcome back students! The syllabi are now online. Sorry for the late posting. We had a fire in Old Main with major water damage. The Geography and Philosophy Departments were badly affected. Things have been in a bit of a mess. But, we are on the mend. Looking forward to a great semester.
