Book Synopsis
"Philosophy and poetry overlap to a degree, therefore it was to be expected that many of Jonathan’s poems engage in philosophical and even theological discussion. Clearly he believed that poems could have cognitive content, in addition to being entertainment for the ear and eye." - Alfred Corn, Poet

"Jonathan had an incandescent mind and the soul to match it. He was dazzling in conversation, generous as a teacher, an elegant writer and a deep thinker. He was a loving father and an irreplaceable friend. His loss to the world of ideas is truly profound." - Vlad Perju, Clough Center Director and Associate Professor of Law at Boston College

About The Author
Author bio image
When Jonathan died of cancer at the age of 35, he left a collection of his poems to be published for his friends and family. Jonathan was a "wordsmith" who loved words, whether in precisely describing philosophical concepts or crafting lyrical poems. He became an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Boston College in 2011. Prior to that he earned a doctorate in Philosophy from Northwestern University in 2009. His wife and daughters now live in Texas. Maya was almost 4 years old and Micaela only 8 months old when he died. Any royalties from the sale of this book will go into an educational fund for the girls.
