I am a 64 year old man of Italian origins. In the 70s I came to the United States as a special student and I took several courses and wrote an essay prefaced by Professor Quine. I went back to Italy where I worked as a teacher and geve several speaches at Universities all around Europe. I came back to US in 1982 with scholarship from Bryn Mawr college where I completed my master degree in Philosophy. I went back to Italy and came back to the US only in 2001. In Pennsyvania I worked for Villanova University, Rosemont College, and Drexel University teaching Italian at both elementary and intermediate Italian as an adjunct teacher. But in 2004 I began to teach philosophy at Nemann College and from there I moved to West Chester University and Immaculata University ehre I have taught up to the summer term of 2008. The courses I have thaught are: Intro to Philosophy, Business Ethics,Logic & Knowledge. Philosophy of Personal Identity, Philosophy of Language both at the undergraduate and graduate level. I am a published writer both in English and Italian, in literature and philosophy.
