At the Intersection of Faith and Culture

I have a Ph.D. in philosophy from Temple University, a master's degree in philosophy from Baylor University, and a bachelor's degree in philosophy and religious studies from Wingate University. I teach philosophy at several colleges in the New Jersey and Pennsylvania areas.

In an election season like the present, the Alfred E. Smith Dinner seems conspicuously dated. Not unlike the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, in this year of the Outsider (or is it the year of the Deplorables?) last week’s event […]

Irrespectively of how he in fact will govern if he becomes president, it’s no longer possible to deny that Donald Trump is indeed the anti-Establishment candidate. To get as far as he has, Trump has had to battle the Regime […]

It’s true that on some of the most pressing of issues—immigration, trade, and foreign policy—Donald Trump’s “America First” positions are more align with traditional conservatism than are those of any other candidate. That is, they clash with the neoconservatism, the […]
