Loyola University Chicago
Bachelor of Arts, Cum Laude
Philosophy (Honors Track), English (Honors Track)
I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree from Loyola University Chicago where I received a Liberal Arts Education. I studied in the Philosophy honors program as well as the English honors program. My specialization in Philosophy is Philosophy of Science which examines what ‘Science’ is, the epistemological limitations of science, and models of understanding science, mathamatics, etc. In English my focus was on Critical Theory and linguistic theory, with an interest in deconstructionism and speech acts.
My thesis in Philosophy examined what a scientific paradigm is and its relationship to a truth statement. I examined philosophical theories of science beginning with Plato to modern physics using the contemporary works of Philosophers Thomas Kuhn and W.V.O.Quine.
My thesis in English examined how each of the sciences had been represented in literature, paying specific attention to the Renaissance period where practitioners of science were accused of witchcraft.
