In Which I Vent About Kim Davis (and Announce My New Philosophy Class Times)

A week ago, I had a blast appearing on the No Religion Required podcast. Bobby, Ashley, Jeremiah, and John could not have been any more hospitable hosts. The main topic I got to vent (and vent I did) about was Kim Davis. Then I explained a bit about how my philosophy classes work and what “empowerment ethics” is. You can hear my whole segment for the first hour of the podcast here.

Listeners of the show expressed interest in my classes afterwards and that led to the scheduling of a new section of one of my classes! So I’m delighted to announce that starting on September 17, 2015, there will be a new Philosophy for Atheists class. It will meet Thursdays from 7:30pm-9:30pm Eastern Time. This is the perfect class for the atheist who wants to get serious about working out a post-theistic philosophical view of the world and to have the skills to do serious counter-apologetics against theists who are versed in philosophy.  More details on the class’s topics, course practices, and prices are here. And the host of No Religion Required Bobby Cary himself is also planning to help me found another section of Philosophy for Atheists which would start in October. Times to be announced. So write me at if you would like to be kept abreast of updates on when that class is kicking off.


I’m also delighted to announce that I already have four women signed up for the new Philosophy of Love, Sex, and Gender class and so have been able to schedule a time to run this class for the first time. Read the wide range of enormously relevant topics that students will be able to choose to explore in this class here. We will meet Sundays 10am-12pm Eastern Time, Starting September 20, 2015. Write me at to sign up!

Also: Tomorrow night, Monday, September 14, 2015 7:30-9:30pm will be the inaugural class period for my new section of  Topical Introduction to Philosophy. This is the perfect class for a newcomer to philosophy to get an introductory understanding of a wide array of central philosophical topics, without any special emphasis on religion. More details on the class’s topics, course practices, and prices are here.

Finally, in addition to these three classes which are set to start in the next week, two Metaethics classes launched very successfully last week. There are 4 students in the Tuesday night 9pm-11pm Eastern Time section of Metaethics and the 3 students in the Friday morning 10am-12pm Eastern Time section of Metaethics. There is still time to hop on board with either of those groups of students this week or later. Please just e-mail me at to let me know if you plan to study with us about whether morality is real or what kind of reality it is. More details on the class topics, course practices, and prices are here.
If you have any questions or concerns about how the classes are run or if you want to take a class but none of those currently scheduled suit your needs, please don’t hesitate to write me so that I can either schedule you a new class around your availability or answer any other questions you have. It’s your feedback that keeps improving the ways I offer classes and the times they occur, so never be shy to write with suggestions!
