I teach philosophy at a small, excellent liberal arts college in upstate New York.
I have many philosophical interests, but underlying them all is the question of how philosophy, philosophical questions, and philosophical problems, are connected to ordinary life. Public philosophy has been in the professional news a lot recently, but I have been trying to practice public philosophy all my life, in my writing, in many – most? – everyday conversations, in my work for social justice, and especially on reproductive rights and reproductive justice…and of course in the classroom.
I have been leading the prison philosophy book group, in one version or another since 2003.
