Welcome to the homepage of the not-quite-famous philosopher Matthew Pike (1978-?)! Who am I? Well, in brief, I am a guy from Colorado who is currently working towards a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Colorado. Philosophy is the only discipline that serves to unite everything- all subjects, all possibilities, and all areas of experience into one realm of discourse, and is therefore, in my humble opinion, the greatest sphere of study. I am also a musician (or at least used to be, my current abilities may make the application of this label questionable), and spend a lot of time hiking, camping, and doing other things outdoors. For more about me, see my bio.
About this website
This site is intended to be a forum for discussing all of the various philosophy papers I have written in my journey, both earning a B.A. degree in philosophy at the University of Colorado, Denver and now currently in graduate school at the University of Colorado, Boulder. It is also intended to be a place for me to put the (seemingly) random electronic files that I want to make available, but for which I do not have a specific destination. Feel free to look around, read some papers, drop me a note. If you are a student, go to my Courses/Teaching section for info on classes as well as resources you may find helpful.
