Praise for Prof. Vernon Cisney
“In my thirty-five years of college teaching, I never met a professor more creative, erudite, and engaging than Vern Cisney. He has the ability, born of hard work and genuine love for his subject, to make the most difficult of topics fascinatingly accessible without sacrificing rigor and insight. He truly is a master teacher!”

“Professor Vern Cisney is one of the best philosophers I know. His impressive prowess in the classroom is supported by a remarkable depth of careful scholarship in print. He is well-loved by his students and deeply respected by his peers. Listeners will find no devil-may-care attitude here but instead the devil deep in the details.”
