In case you’re new to Parableman, my name is Jeremy Pierce. I received my Ph.D. in philosophy from Syracuse University in 2011. I teach philosophy and sometimes writing at Le Moyne College in Syracuse and at Onondaga Community College (mostly online courses at this point). I have published A Realist Metaphysics of Race with Lexington Books, a division of Rowman & Littlefield that focuses on academic monographs. Besides philosophy of race, I also have strong interests and training in metaphysics and philosophy of religion, and I teach courses in a much wider range of philosophy. I also have blogged on and off at the philosophy of religion blog Prosblogion, where I’m still listed as a contributor. Perhaps I’ll make a return there soon too.

I started blogging in 2003, slowing down significantly while I finished my dissertation and then began teaching a full-time load, and I’ve missed it during the time that my old blog has been down. It gives me a chance to write about some things that aren’t my academic discipline or to write at a more popular level about my areas of specialization.
