How has your philosophical training influenced your life and career? Studying and teaching philosophy helped train me to construct and evaluate arguments carefully, and to communicate clearly and concisely. I have found these skills to be extremely useful in writing and public speaking outside of academia.

How has your philosophical training influenced your life and career? I am currently working in academic philosophy, right now as a postdoc at NYU. My philosophical training has certainly influenced my non-professional life, too, but in ways that are harder to articulate. My little brother says that it has made arguing with me much more annoying.

How has your philosophical training influenced your life and career? Oh, philosophy changed everything. I went from being valued solely for my physical labor to realizing I was capable of sound thinking that was worthy of being communicated.

Any current engagement with philosophy? Informally, lots of reading and listening to zoom lectures.
