Professor

Philosophy

My principal area of research at present is compassion and the spiritual life within the Orthodox Christian tradition. This new area adds to my longstanding interests in (1) Dionysius the Areopagite, focusing on the interpretations of the Divine Names and Mystical Theology in terms of the Greek Patristic/Eastern Orthodox, Latin Scholastic, and Neoplatonic traditions; and (2) poverty and social marginalization, focusing on philosophical and theological approaches to these issues.

I am a priest of the Orthodox Church in America.

 

Education

Ph.D., Boston College

Courses Taught

I regularly teach undergraduate courses in Theory of Ethics and Applied Ethics. In recent years at the graduate level, I have taught Plato as well as Plotinus and Early Christian Neoplatonism. I’ve taught special topics courses in Dionysius the Areopagite, Greek Patristic/Byzantine Philosophy, and Needs and Human Welfare.
