Steve (1983-1987)

1. What does this past Kansas debater look like now?

2. What does this ex-debater now do for a living?

Steve is an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Oklahoma.

3. Has this former debater been "in the news"?

Not much, so far as I can tell. Perhaps the media doesn't recognize the value of "philosophy of mind."

Steve tried to influence the "Right to Work" ballot question in Oklahoma, but was unsuccessful.

4. What else do we know?

As an "ethics expert," Steve has been asked to weigh in on whether internet file swapping (music, film, games) is theft -- or merely civil disobedience.

Stevel traveled to Dallas in 2001 to talk about utility theory and to Stevens Point, WI in 2004 to talk about Values. The paper associated with the earlier conference received an award for best paper by a graduate student or recent PhD.
