Christian Hoeckley, Director, Gaede Institute for the Liberal Arts
I direct the Gaede Institute for the Liberal Arts at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, where I also teach philosophy and regularly lead off-campus programs. My primary philosophical interest is the ethics of war. As director of the Gaede Institute, I have organized more than a dozen conferences on liberal arts education, including next winter’s, From Inquiry to Impact: Social Transformation through Liberal Learning. I hold a PhD in philosophy from Claremont Graduate University.
