I teach philosophy and religion at Albertus Magnus College, a small Catholic liberal arts college in New Haven, Connecticut. I also produce an occasional podcast about philosophy, The Philosophy Shelf, with my colleague Matt Waggoner. My work focuses on the philosophy of personalism and the Catholic intellectual tradition. For more about me, see the About page.
My current project is a study of the thought of Peter Maurin (1877–1949), co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement with Dorothy Day. I focus on the content of Maurin’s ideas, especially his call for a “green revolution” and his “Easy Essays,” and trace connections between his own work and the personalist philosophy of French Catholic activist and intellectual Emmanuel Mounier (1905–1950).
