Newark, DE USA
Bio: My love of literature led me to New York University, where I earned a B.A. in English in 1982, with minors in Psychology and Classics. While continuing to pursue the intellectual life through independent study, I discovered the Perennial Philosophy, primarily through the writings of Mortimer Adler and other authors in the Great Books tradition, the reading of which led me to Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, CA, where I earned a B.A. in Liberal Arts; graduating in 1994. Since then, with the help of the Internet, the Busa edition of the works of St. Thomas Aquinas, and the invaluable contributions of first rate fellow scholars, I have continued my intellectual pursuits, primarily centering on Aristotle's Poetics, special topics in logic, grammar, and language generally, as well as the relation of natural and revealed religion to myth. Finally, and most importantly, by the grace of God, I have been able to devote considerable time and energy to unfolding, in the tradition of Sts. Thomas and Augustine, the underlying sense of the Creation account in Genesis.
