My name is Sanford Levy and I teach philosophy at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.  Students new to many academic subjects are often puzzled by what it is they are supposed to do with that subject, how to approach it, how to read its literature, how to participate in it. This is particularly true of philosophy, a field that leaves many puzzled even after several years of study. On this site I provide some materials that may be useful for those relatively new to philosophy.  I am  interested in guiding students in the reading of philosophical works, in the writing of philosophical essays, and in thinking as at least some philosophers like to think.

This picture is borrowed from  Wikimedia.org where it is described as the head of a statue of a philosopher from around 240 B.C.  It could be of Bion the Borysthenite, but the shaggy hair and beard are said to be typical of all kinds of philosophers.  You can therefore take this as an adequate picture of me.
