Pursuing the light of objective truth in subjective darkness.

Aaron Preston holds degrees in Classics, Theology, and Philosophy, and is a Professor of Philosophy at Valparaiso University. He has authored, co-authored, or edited three academic books (Analytic Philosophy: the History of an Illusion, Analytic Philosophy: an Interpretive History, and The Disappearance of Moral Knowledge), and has published numerous articles in academic journals. Most of his work has dealt with the history of analytic philosophy, the history of ethics, metaphilosophy, and the philosophy and psychology of religion. His current work focuses on the largely forgotten philosophical school of Personalism, which guided the human rights movement in Europe after WWII and the early Civil Rights movement in the United States (Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Personalist). He hopes to resurrect Personalism as a viable alternative to the now dominant Critical Social Justice framework.
