Welcome to my website. I use this site as a mode of disseminating my thought and connecting with others, and it has often served as a way of generating discussion. It would be silly to attempt to catalog all of my interests because they are so numerous, but my areas of expertise include metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of science, integral philosophy, Kant, Whitehead, and Nietzsche. I have published in philosophy of neuroscience, and I have written comprehensive exam papers Darwinian philosophy and the unity of nature/disunity of science. My dissertation is on systems philosophy (and general systems theory) and a unique approach using an original theory of metaphysical abstraction, and, conjoining with that, novel understandings of causation and what the sciences are fundamentally in terms of abstraction. I have additional areas of competency in logic, theoretical physics, mathematics (especially stochastic and mathematical finance), Kuhn, history of philosophy, German Idealism, pragmatism, consciousness studies, and some domains withing the history of science. My interests include many other areas, but to give you an idea of some, here are a few: process philosophy, GTR-QM incompatibilities (such as commutative and non-commutative geometries), panpsychism, Newton, philosophy of law, philosophy of education, reductionism, philosophy of special sciences, cognitive science, and various religious philosophies, studies, and histories.
I also facilitate numerous philosophy reading groups and philosophical chat groups, which range from informal discussions among individuals not trained in philosophy through university trained at various levels of formal and informal study. I do field inquiries for newcomers seeking philosophical discussions in an existing group or for those who want me to facilitate or create a new group. Formerly, these had all been in person, but the post-COVID virtual world has made it so that all groups I facilitate are done online through video call platforms.
