About Micah

I love teaching philosophy. I believe that philosophy's job is to help us think clearly about our lives, so my teaching emphasizes the relevance of philosophical texts and concepts to the world and culture in which my students live.

I specialize in phenomenology, but enjoy teaching and researching contemporary Analytic and Continental philosophy, as well as the history of philosophy. [More about Micah...]
