Welcome to “The Traveling Philosopher” (formerly known as “Philosophy Gets Real”)

This is a static home page. This means that everyone who visits this site will see this page first, every time. If you wish to skip this page to find my most recent posts, or to navigate the site in other ways, look either to the column that runs along the right-hand side of this page or to the less complete but better organized menus that run across the top of the page (below the photo).

Here’s what this site is for:

  1. Travel writing. Travel is my most favorite leisure/working vacation activity.
  2. Teaching memos and notes about gamification in the classroom. I will say a bit about what has worked well for me, about what hasn’t worked so well for me, and about what I’m trying in the classroom. I’ve been teaching for over a decade, and the more I learn, the more I know I need to learn. Feel free to help on that score.
  3. Philosophical writing from my graduate-school days. It’s been since 2013 since I’ve been enrolled in full-time academic research.

Please visit the About Me page to learn about me and the Site Policies page to learn about my practices in administering this site.

Thanks for visiting!

    Looks like you had a great trip. Sophia was thrilled to get your postcard. We heard there have been some changes. She still wants to get you your book. What’s the best way?
