"I find myself drawn to philosophizing and teaching about human experiences that I have found especially exhilarating. Thus, I regularly teach courses in philosophy of art, film, travel and love. I find teaching the introductory Search for Meaning course particularly exciting, because it is usually the first awakening students have to philosophy and its unique approach to the kind of meaning questions that inevitably arise in the course of living."
