Until recently I was an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at St. Gregory’s University, but I am pleased to have accepted a position as the Director of Marriage and Family Life for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City. Here is a link to my public profile on LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/alexander-schimpf/9/655/87b

My academic specialties are in Moral Philosophy and the Philosophy of the Human Person, especially as addressed by the German Catholic philosopher Robert Spaemann. I now seek to make use of that background in order to strengthen the family, the Domestic Church.

I also enjoy the discussion of philosophy as it intersects with the Catholic faith, and I am always happy to give a talk at your parish or group. Below is a link to a talk I gave for the Catholic University first-year students on “Grace and Nature.”

I hope you enjoy the blog–please feel free to email me your questions or comments at alexanderschimpf@gmail.com

    Your talk reminds me much of my style in the classroom as well. As a new grad of a graduate program and adjunct professor I can’t wait to share notes and read what you have to write! Virginia for the win!

      Thanks! Sometimes I worry that my classes get too fun. But then I have days when everyone is asleep and I realize that there’s not much danger of that actually happening.

      Glad to hear you are returning to VA!

        Absolutely, I traipse that fine like in order to keep things fresh and new. I find that the fact that we seem to be less removed from their generation is helpful not only in our understanding of them, but also in how they view us.
