Occupation: Manager, writer, artist (painting in acrylics)
I specialize mostly in the critical philosophy of Immanuel Kant. The only thing I have published thus far, is an essay titled "Beyond Kant and Hegel, In Answer to the Question: 'How Are Synthetic Cognitions A Priori Possible.'" This essay appeared in the March 2013 issue of the "Review of Metaphysics."
The essay argues for an open as opposed to a closed interpretation of Kant.
Another essay I wrote called "The Effect for Cause, or What for Why Fallacy," is in the submissions queue of "The Philosophical Review," and a further essay, expounding what I call a Causal Argument, has been submitted to the "Kritike" online journal of philosophy.
I have suspended studies at university, though have declared a major in philosophy and English; and someday hope to resume studies; but the thing is, one can probably learn much more about philosophy by studying on their own.
My web site is causalargument.com. For those interested in reading what amounts to a highly abstract answer to the challenge voiced by Immanuel Kant in his critical philosophy. The site has links to online editions of the "Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics," and "Critique of Pure Reason," as well as a link to the "Review of Metaphysics."
