Brief Bio:
I was born in Tacoma, Washington, and spent my teen-age years in San Diego, California.  I went away to college in the midwest (University of Chicago), and have remained in this part of the country ever since.  
My research has focused on the work of Baruch (Benedictus) Spinoza.  His "Ethics" is a facinating attempt to capture all knowledge, including human psychology, politics and ethics, in a single system, grounded in a rigorous metaphysical doctrine.  It is thoroughly modern in its naturalistic approach to every area of inquiry, and at the same time offers what, at least ot some, is a satisfying "philosophy of life."  I am currently interested particularly in his theory of mind and mentality, which is in many respects highly similar to that of some contemporary philosophers.
