EDUCATION

 

The University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, 1965--1981.

 

I majored first in Government, then Economics, next Hinduism and Buddhism, and finally took my B.A. in Philosophy in 1969.

 

I traveled around the U.S. for a year in 1969-70, hitchhiking coast to coast.

 

I returned to UVA for ten years of grad school.  During this decade, I immersed myself in the history of ethics, psychology, and literature and toiled on my unfinished dissertation "Character, Choice, and Change."

 

I taught "Morals and Politics" and "Ethics" as a Teaching Assistant for several years and, for two semesters, taught the undergraduate "Aesthetics" course.
