I teach phi­los­o­phy and reli­gion at Alber­tus Mag­nus Col­lege, a small Catholic lib­er­al arts col­lege in New Haven, Con­necti­cut. 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).


Jacques Maritain’s personalist pedagogy

The Cen­ter for Teach­ing and Learn­ing Excel­lence at Alber­tus invit­ed me to present a ver­sion of a paper I’d been work­ing on, about Jacques Mar­i­tain’s phi­los­o­phy of edu­ca­tion. Dis­cus­sion fol­lows the talk.
