Welcome. On this site, you will find information about my educational background, publications, work-in-progress, courses I teach, and whatever else seems relevant from time to time.[Last updated on 03/14/2013]
I received my B.A. in Philosophy from the University
of California, Berkeley and my M.A. and Ph.D. in
Philosophy from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
I studied history of philosophy while at Berkeley,
especially Ancient Greek philosophy, and ethical theory.
At Michigan I further pursued study of ethical theory
and specialized in early Chinese philosophy, especially
the ethical views of the early Confucian, Mencius.
I wrote my dissertation on ethical theory and moral
psychology in the thought of the early Confucian,
I have formal training in Ancient Greek,
Latin, and Classical Chinese; I speak some Mandarin
and Korean, as well.
From Fall 2011 and until Fall 2014, I will be on a
reduced teaching schedule while serving as
Associate Dean of the College of Arts &
