What were your favorite philosophy courses at UCLA?
Existentialism was pretty cool. And Philosophy of History.
Are there any philosophical issues, readings, or topics that have stayed with you since graduation?
I think about philosophy all the time, especially political philosophy. But as I’m currently writing a book about centrism and partisan dysfunction in politics I guess that makes sense.
What lessons or skills from philosophy do you use in your career?
Logic and critical thinking were of course tremendously useful for law school and after, although I’m not a litigator but more of a business lawyer. But I’m a big believer in a liberal arts education in general.
