Berkeley, CA, United States | Member since June 30, 2017

I’m Professor Emeritus of Rhetoric at the University of California, Berkeley and Professor of Humanities at California College of the Arts. After earning my Ph.D. at Princeton in 1987 I taught at Berkeley for the better part of two decades, in the Department of Rhetoric – then something of a wildlife preserve that sheltered scholars in many fields including literature, film, intellectual history, law, politics, and sociology as well as philosophy. Partly as a result, I’ve worked on a variety of topics over the years, including political and moral philosophy, philosophy of art, philosophy of mind, hermeneutics, and American politics and culture. In 2006 I retired from Berkeley to become associate dean of graduate studies at California College of the Arts, and in 2008 I returned to teaching. Topics of recent courses include the concept of art, the concept of the political, the meaning of life, and philosophy & film. I’m a strong believer in liberal education and the study of the great books of the Western canon, but I also have an abiding interest in the religion, art, and literature of India, China, and Japan (only in translation, sadly).
