Dr. Weil earned his B.A. in Philosophy from Stanford University. After playing and teaching drums professionally in Los Angeles for a few years, he returned to Stanford for an M.A. in Philosophy of Science, then went on to earn a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Southern California. His primary interests are metaphysics and the mind, but he is curious about every topic he has encountered so far concerning the universe and its inhabitants.
Before joining the OHS community, Dr. Weil taught courses at USC on philosophy of mind, early modern philosophy of science, ethics and religion, and philosophical conceptions of love; at the OHS he has taught Human Nature and Society, Methodology of Science: Biology, History and Philosophy of Science, Democracy, Freedom, and the Rule of Law, Critical Reading and Argumentation, Study of the Mind, and Eastern Thought. He also spends as much free time as possible surfing, drumming, reading, hiking up and riding down mountains.
