Welcome to my personal website! 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. Contemporary understanding on the relationship between science
and philosophy is that they are contrary domains of enquiry. A correct
understanding of the history of philosophy and science, however, shows that
science takes direction from philosophy, and always has!
My general research interests are in the application of philosophical
principles to science, economics, leadership, and management. I enjoy applying
theory to practice and extracting principles from practice to better understand
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.
Like myself, Boethius was a public administrator in his
time, one reason I admire his many contributions to Western civilization, and
why I named my personal website, The Boethian Renewal. For more on Boethius, please access the
hyper-linked web page.
My research is an important part of my ongoing personal
development in both academic and professional work.
