I will try to schedule extra office hours during busy times in the semester. I am happy to make appointments in advance, but feel free to drop by during office hours without an appointment. Please notify me ASAP if you can't show up for an appointment. Telephone: 773-508-2729; to leave a message for me with the Philosophy Department Secretary call 773-508- 2291 (this is much better than leaving an audix Message on my number; audix messages are difficult for me to access). If you leave an audix message and want me to return your call, please read your phone number slowly and distinctly twice. E-Mail: [email protected] (Please identify yourself as a student in Philosophy 181 in the header so that your message isn't mistaken for SPAM); e-mail is usually preferable to the telephone for leaving short messages. If you have an urgent message, phone me and e-mail me. Note: I generally won’t reply to emails during weekends and breaks. Email is not an adequate alternative to coming to office hours. Come talk to me in person if you have substantive questions that require lengthy answers – I am available in office hours and by phone to answers such questions.
