"Believe those who seek the truth; Doubt those who find it."  André Gide

This site intends to promote the search for knowledge for both my students and for me, in the hopes that all of us will commit ourselves to that search as a continuous journey, even when we disagree.  What we know does not measure wisdom; rather, wisdom remains the desire to find the answers.

The following courses are part of my on-going schedule at Arkansas State University.  While the syllabi may alter somewhat,  the courses are for the most part composed of standard works I use in my classes. 

"The Abundance of the Arts"

   For further information as to the university's schedule for these classes, whether offered through the
    Department of English and  Philosophy or the Honors Program, please consult the Undergraduate Bulletin
   (Arkansas State University "search": scroll down to "Bulletin").  For instance, Honors seminars are often
   not repeated for at least two years, while courses such as "Shakespeare Survey"  appear most
   semesters; in addition, Special Topics seminars, which change with each class, also occur each semester. 

  For more specific information on a particular course, contact me at or call the
  Department of English & Philosophy, at 870-972-3043.
