I am a senior lecturer in the Philosophy Department at CSUS, and a member of the Asian Studies program. I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy at UC Santa Barbara. My main interests are in the Philosophy of Religion (Miracles, Divine Agency), Theory of Action, History of Western Philosophy, Asian Philosophy, and Environmental Ethics.

I have published a book entitled The Philosophy of Miracles (Continuum 2007). My main concern in this book is to apply contemporary discussion in the theory of action to the problem of miracles, and construct a conception of the miraculous which is consistent with the assumptions of naturalism and which provides an alternative to the usual notion of a miracle as a violation of natural law.

Here is a copy of my student evaluation summary for Spring 2013. This is a summary of all my evaluations from five sections of three courses: Introduction to Ethics, Philosophy of Religion, and Chinese Philosophy.

Here is a copy of my student evaluation summary for Fall 2013. It is a summary of all my evaluations from five sections of three courses: Introduction to Ethics, History of Philosophy, and Philosophy of Religion.


Fall 2014

I am scheduled to teach five sections, as follows:

---

Phil 104 (Bioethics)

Section 1 will be a conventional lecture session, held in a studio classroom.  The lectures will be televised.

Section 2 will be fully online and will be based on the televised lectures for Section 1.

---

PHIL 131.01 (Philosophy of Religion), MW 12:00-1:15pm

Instruction for this section will be online every other Monday, beginning with Monday of the 3rd week of classes.  During these online- instruction Mondays, attendance will be optional.  I will hold review and discussion during these periods as needed, and we may use the time to view (or listen to), and discuss, the online instruction materials.

---

PHIL 026 (History of Philosophy)

Section 4, TR 9:00-10:15am

Section 2, TR 10:30-11:45am

Instruction for both of these Phil 26 sections will be 46% hybrid, with instruction offered online every Thursday, beginning with Thursday of the second week of classes.  There will be no physical class meeting on those days.
