I am an independent philosophy scholar dedicated to studying the philosophical aspects of the Bahá’í Writings as well as correlating the Writings with major contemporary and past thinkers as recommended by Shoghi Effendi (“Scholarship,” p. 4; p. 17). I am committed to  Mortimer Adler’s assertion that “Philosophy is everybody’s business” and that knowingly or not, everyone is a philosopher. During my high school teaching career I developed a program to integrate philosophy into the subjects I taught: Comparative Civilization, English and modern History. I  enjoy helping others initiate their own philosophical studies of the Bahá’í Writings.
