A professor at a small liberal arts college must wear many hats, and so I’ve taught a good many different courses in my career. My specialty is Formal Logic, but I have taught Intro, Epistemology, Metaphysics, Language, 20th Century Analytic, Great Ideas in Modern Math, and Oglethorpe’s ubiquitous Core Program (in particular Core I, Narratives of the Self, or “learning to write through reading great literature”.)
I have a bit of a background in computational linguistics, from grad school, and as Oglethorpe does not have a Linguistics Major, I have wound up teaching a few independent studies in formal semantics and conversational pragmatics.

In the recent past, I have taught:
