About Me

Marvin B. Daniel Peláez

Welcome to my personal website, The Boethian Renewal.

Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius (born: circa 475–7 C.E., died: 526? C.E.) was a Roman philosopher and statesman and has long been recognized as one of the most important intermediaries between ancient philosophy and the Latin Middle Ages. His well-known work, On the Consolation of Philosophy, 524 C.E., is a classic work in Western civilization.

Boethius was a public administrator in his time, one reason I admire his many contributions to Western civilization. I named my personal website, The Boethian Renewal , in his honor. For more on Boethius, please access the hyper-linked web page. 

I am a career government economist and researcher in classical and scholastic philosophy of the High Latin Middle Ages. My academic work in philosophy helps guide my professional work in government. My colleagues find my interdisciplinary work and approach interesting, perhaps because science and philosophy seem to be contrary domains of enquiry.

However, my academic colleagues view the focus of my research as applying valuable “common sense” philosophical principles to science, economics, leadership, and management. I enjoy applying theory to practice and extracting principles from practice to better understand theory. 

My personal research is an important part of my ongoing professional development in the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
