What is Two Minute Treatise?

Two Minute Treatise is a bite-sized philosophical newsletter designed to bring carefully crafted reflections to your mailbox every Monday. It only takes two minutes to read, but is jammed-full of analysis and discussion of complex sources.

Who am I?

My philosophical background is rooted primarily in the revived Hellenistic philosophy of Stoicism (I am a Stoic-in-training!) but I have also studied Nietzsche, educational philosophy and psychology (ranging from Socrates to Vygotsky and Freire), self-help, and mindfulness. The eclectic nature of my studies produces a unique blend of insights while remaining accessible.  I am, by no means, an ivory-tower philosopher— rather, I am a lover of learning who wants to bring others along for the journey.
