I have an MA in philosophy from the University of Manitoba and a PhD from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. My doctoral dissertation was on the structure of conscious experience. Among other things, it made an attempt to reconcile some traditional philosophical views about conscious experience with some recent experimental psychology. My research interests are broad and currently include the cognitive science of religion, questions about the meaning and value of life, and human rights discourse. I teach philosophy at a number of colleges and universities, including the University of Winnipeg, Menno Simons College, and Booth University College.
