I am a student of language and literature. I have been reading, writing, and studying for most of my life. I received a B.A. in English from Fresno State and then went on to receive an M.A. and Ph.D. in English at Indiana University. I am interested in literature, philosophy, history and gardening. For the last 16 years, I have been a teacher at Peninsula College and, when not working, reading, or writing, spend much of my time in my garden.

Wes offers an unparalleled series of summaries of eminent philosopher’s lives and work. I fully recommend this series to any first year Phil student as an introduction. Whether you agree with his personal views or not, he gives a fair representation of each philosopher. I happen to agree with much of what he believes, however. Respectable man.

insane reach, indispensable podcast

I learned so many things i just had no idea about from the forgotten thinkers and languages lecture series. and i had my thinking permanently changed by the "smartness" episode of american myths!
