The history of human thought and communication can be perceived as a series of modes that inform and extend meaning.

There is no more relevant or important skill in contemporary education than the ability to hold, present and defend vigorously our perspectives through the articulation of that information and meaning. My teaching philosophy stipulates that every aspect of human thought and action can be thought of as a text, and that the entire process of communication is defined by its influences, intentions and interruptions. My philosophy mandates that every brand of academic thought has importance in the way that we choose to interpret human ideas.
