Michael C. LaBossiere is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, USA. His 'Philosophical Provocations' column appears regularly in The Philosopher's Magazine and on the magazine's website.
"'Drawing from a hallowed tradition dating back to Socrates and Plato, LaBossiere brilliantly tackles many of the toughest ethical dilemmas of our times, from gender selection, cloning and sexual inequality to violence in the media and the conduct of warfare. In an age of snap judgments and stereotypes, he approaches his topics in a refreshingly open-minded fashion. His quick wit and firm knowledge of contemporary culture bring philosophy full-force into the 21st century.' Paul Halpern, Professor of Physics, University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, Author of What's Science Ever Done for Us?"
