Penn College Professor Presents Paper at Philosophy Workshop


Brian M. McKeonA faculty member in Pennsylvania College of Technology’s School of Integrated Studies presented a paper at the Workshop on Nondisciplinary Philosophy, held earlier this month in Binghamton, N.Y.

Brian M. McKeon, assistant professor of biology, presented “Psychological Dialetheism” during the April 14 workshop at Binghamton University.

One of the themes of this year’s workshop was “Science, Mystery and Religion.”

McKeon’s paper discusses the existence of dialetheia, or true contradictions, that arise at the limits of thought. Dialetheia are best seen in many of the paradoxes found in math and philosophy. McKeon argues that we can see these true contradictions thanks to subtle perspective shifts.

McKeon holds a doctorate from Binghamton University. He also earned degrees from Duquesne University and the State University of New York College at Cortland.
