to my website, where I'm glad to bring to people what I've learned from

human mind and the world we are in with new respect and
scientific exactness. Studying it enables individual men and women to

grew up near Cincinnati and
majored in English
Literature at Denison University; moved to New York City and worked as

have contempt for the world and what is in it....Contempt can be defined as the
lessening of what is different from oneself as a means of self-increase

of opposites, and the making one of opposites is what we are going

presented with my colleagues Carrie Wilson and Karen Van
Outryve at a public seminar at the Aesthetic Realism Foundation in NYC,
