Author Biography

Tyler Tritten, Gonzaga University

I love teaching and researching philosophy, and these are not two distinct activities. Research questions are thought through in the classroom and preparation for teaching is conducted in the confines of my office. I hope students leave every class equipped and eager to pose better questions next class, but pained by the realization that they know less now than before class. Areas of expertise include questions in 19th, 20th and 21st (still living!) Century European Philosophy and the Philosophy of Religion. I enjoy conversing with budding gadflies at Gonzaga, but am most proud of two burgeoning philosophers at home.
