Back last Fall, I gave an invited lecture at the Institute for Ethics and Entrepreneurship (Rockford University), on Stoicism, Ethics, and Entrepreneurship – mainly for the business students there.  I’ve just now edited and released the videorecording – and here it is.

Kicking things off in 2017, I’ve published a new class in the ReasonIO Academy – World Views and Values.  This is a popular and high-demand course I developed and taught online several years for a highly-ranked college.  I’m making it available now worldwide for a fraction of the cost – widening access to education is […]

I’ve started writing as a guest blogger for an excellent site, Policy of Truth, run by by friend and colleague, Irfan Khawaja, over at Felician College.  Policy of Truth tends to focus most on cultural and political issues and theory, but the entries have a pretty wide range.  Best of all, the discussions tend to […]

I posted earlier in my main blog, Orexis Dianoētikē, a piece about ten oft-quoted passages of famous philosophers who are far less often read than cited on these points.  How many of these have you seen in your social media streams or in blog posts? I’ve also included a challenge at the end. . .

We finished out our year-long public lecture series on Worlds of Speculative Fiction with a talk focused on George R.R. Martin’s as-yet unfinished Song of Ice and Fire (AKA Game of Thrones) series.  Excellent and lively discussion as usual.  If you’d like to see the video, here’s the link.

One topic I teach about frequently – and which comes up at times in my philosophical counseling practice – is Aristotle’s distinction between three different types of friendship.  I recently published a piece in my main blog, Orexis Dianoētikē, on just that matter – addressing some concerns about the difficulties with finding the highest form of […]

For crowdfunding Patreon supporters of the Half Hour Hegel project, I recently opened up a new online class in our ReasonIO Academy.  The class price is $175, but for anyone who is or becomes a Patreon supporter (even at the $1 per video level), we’re giving them access to the class for FREE. If you’d […]

We held our eleventh session in the Worlds of Speculative Fiction series – recently renewed for another twelve sessions in 2017 – this time discussing Mervyn Peake’s wonderful, and not-often-enough-read Gormenghast trilogy.  If you’d like to watch the videorecording, here it is.

I’m happy to announce that, as we draw the first year of the monthly series to a close, the Worlds of Speculative Fiction series has been renewed for another 12 sessions in 2017! You can read more about it here – including the list of the 12 authors we will be covering – in my […]

Since we opened the Epictetus’ Enchiridion – Ancient Philosophy & Peace of Mind online course (hosted in our new ReasonIO Academy on Teachable), we’ve seen quite a few students enroll in the class.  At this point, while I write this, it’s 235, and by the time this post appears, several more will likely have enrolled.
