B. Scot Rousse My scholarly work takes place at the crossroads of existential phenomenology, hermeneutics, and the philosophy of action, and these days I am invested in rethinking not only the nature of human identity, but also the nature of education and design. In addition to being a visiting scholar in the Department of Philosophy here at Berkeley, I am Director of Research for Pluralistic Networks, Inc., an education and professional development company based in Oakland, CA, which was co-founded by Fernando Flores. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from Northwestern University and my B.A. in philosophy here at Berkeley.
