  • Wesley Chambers


    I’m a software developer in St. Louis, MO, though I’ve lived all over. I attended the MA philosophy program at Talbot School of Theology at Biola. From there I went to get my PhD in philosophy from the university of Missouri, but for various complicated reasons decided to step away from higher ed. So now I write code full time and philosophy when I have time! I love to think, write, and teach on the issues I care most about, which are philosophy, theology, and history. Ideas and their consequences are important, and writing in a public place affords me a chance to engage with others who share a similar passion for truth. I like critical discussion and argumentation, so long as civility and charity (among other intellectual virtues) reign supreme. I’ve been married to my wife, Jessica, for just over five years. I also enjoy fiction, problem solving, exercise, and good coffee.
