Teaching Philosophy

My primary goal is to help students develop intellectual habits that allow them to think critically and deeply about the world around them and their particular place in it.  By exploring the ways that religious and philosophical traditions have approached life's "big questions," students are able to develop a critical framework for approaching such questions in their own lives.

Because my research is both interdisciplinary and interreligious, I am able to teach a wide variety of courses.  Syllabi and complete unedited course evaluations are available below. (Note: the college used a new course evaluation system in Spring 2017.  Response rates were very low.)
