Joseph Krylow

Asst Teaching Professor

Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies

Withers Hall NA


I enlisted in the Marines while in high school. After serving I had planned to study psychology, but after my first philosophy class I knew I had found my calling. Since that time I have dedicated myself to studying, doing, and teaching philosophy. I am especially interested in medieval philosophy, philosophy of religion and virtue ethics, but I enjoy philosophical discussion in other areas as well. When I’m not doing philosophy I enjoy playing guitar, spending time with my wife and two boys, and attending my boys’ athletic events. (I even do a little coaching when the occasion arises!) Whether you’re one of my students or not, please don’t hesitate to stop by and chat. I look forward to doing philosophy with you!
