Dr. Philip J. (Max) Maloney, Professor, has been a member of the religion and philosophy faculty since 2000. He received a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Memphis, and an M.A. and B.A. in philosophy from the University of Montana. His primary research interests are in contemporary continental philosophy, primarily within the phenomenological tradition. He has published articles on Husserl, Heidegger, Levinas, and Derrida, and is currently thinking, reading, and writing on the intersection between the phenomenological tradition and the recent resurgence of realism in the continental tradition. As a faculty member, he teaches courses that satisfy the CBU moral values general education requirement, logic, and courses in the history of philosophy. He appreciates irony and savage witticism, striving to be a master of both. He chafes under the requirements of bureaucratic life, and is thus clearly human.
