About

"It is our unique privilege to be the kind of beings who can participate in the formation of our beliefs, values, and choices, but this requires we take some ownership in understanding how our views are formed and, most importantly, how these views can be constructively changed for the better."

Howard received a Ph.D. from the Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven, Belgium, in 2004. His recent research interests include the philosophy of technology and media ethics, astrobiology and moral enhancement. He has published articles on Kant, Hegel, Schelling, in the fields of philosophy of emotion, philosophy of education, philosophy of film, ethics, and is the editor of the Journal of Analytic Teaching and Philosophical Praxis. He regularly leads seminars for Serving the Common Good and The Ethical Life.
