Studying Philosophy at YCP

My Teaching and Research Interests

The study of philosophy is excellent preparation for careers that demand careful reading, critical thinking, and decision-making abilities. A major in Philosophy provides a solid foundation for students planning careers in medicine, law, education, and business. Philosophy majors are among the top performers on the Law School Aptitude Test and the Medical College Aptitude Test. Philosophy majors also succeed in executive and management sectors of business that require the ability to assimilate information, analyze situations, and produce effective solutions to complex problems.

An abiding interest of mine is on those key questions "What does it mean to be a human being?" and "What is my place in the cosmos?" These were the key questions of philosophical anthropology and a number of my essays explore these issues, especially in their relation to technology and the digital culture. I am especially interested in the issue of the posthuman and how it might relate to philosophical anthropology.
