Eric Anthamatten is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the New School for Social Research in New York City. His work focuses on philosophy, education, and social justice, more specifically on issues surrounding education in marginal, non-traditional, and non-academic settings: the prison, adult education, the homeless. Eric received an M.A. in Philosophy from Texas A&M University as well as a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and a minor in electronic music. He has taught philosophy since 2001 at various institutions in Texas and New York, ranging from community colleges to small privates schools, from major public universities to maximum security prisons in rural Texas. He is also an instructor of martial arts in Manhattan, where he teaches students ranging from age three to sixty-three, a pedagogical scene that he sees as continuous with his philosophical work.
