I am an associate professor of Philosophy at Fordham University. Depending on what brought you here, I may or may not be the Brian Johnson you are looking for. With a name like mine, I have many doppelgangers. I am not the Brian Johnson who was lead singer for AC/DC. I am not the Brian Johnson who is an internet entrepreneur, self-styled philosopher, and self-help guru. Instead, I am one of the many academic Brian Johnsons. I specialize in ancient Greek and Roman ethics and I can be distinguished by the middle name of "Earl."

I can be reached in the following places:
