Dear readers,

in Jason passing away Scholardarity has experienced a severe set-back, and I have lost a true friend. When after grieving I can begin to work on Scholardarity again, this work can only proceed in his memory.

Jason did not live to himself and he did not die to himself. When he lived, he lived to the Lord and when he died, he died to the Lord. So when he lived and when he died, he belonged to the Lord. But that is why Christ — the way, the truth, the resurrection, and life —  died and lived again, that he might be the Lord both of the dead and of the living. (cf. Romans 14:7-9)



Education: BA, Philosophy, San Francisco State University; 2010.

Research Interests: Philosophy, esp.  Philosophical Logic, History of Philosophy, Philosophy of Mind, Metaphysics, Ethics, and Wittgenstein.
