After some 25 years in the computer and high-tech industries, I decided to abandon the ‘Bill Gates business model of life’ for the fame and fortune of academics. I have taught full-time at Merrimack and Muskingum colleges, and part time at William Raney Harper college, where the courses I presented included Ethics, Logic, Philosophy of Science, Process Philosophy and Pragmatism. I am currently an Independent Scholar working on various projects relating to the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead, the logical forms and presuppositions of measurement, and the connections between spatial reasoning and general metaphysics. My publications include The Gate of Swords: Book 1 of The Dragon and The Rose; with Randall Auxier The Quantum of Explanation: Whitehead’s Radical Empiricism, through Routledge; Whitehead and the Measurement Problem of Cosmology, through ontos-verlag (now De Gruyter, May 2006); “Alfred North Whitehead” at The Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy; “Thunder Road,” in Bruce Springsteen and Philosophy, Edited by Randall E. Auxier and Doug Anderson, Popular Culture and Philosophy series, Open Court Publishing Company, Chicago (2008), “Theory of Groups and Social Measurement,” The Reasoner, volume 2, number 2, (February 2008); and “Davidson and the Impossibility of Psychophysical Laws” in Synthese 145 1, 2005). I presently keep house with my cat, who despairs of my ever learning anything interesting.
