Phil Smith is Professor
of Philosophy at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon. As a
philosopher he works mostly in ethical theory; he is the author of The
Virtue of Civility in the Practice of Politics (University Press of
America, 2002), Being at Home in the World (with Mark McLeod-Harrison,
Wipf and Stock, 2011), Why Faith is a Virtue (Wipf and Stock, Cascade
Books, 2014) and many articles and conference papers. Some of his
philosophical work, and a draft version of a science fiction novel,
Castles, are available on his blog. His novels reflect, to a degree,
his work in virtue theory, but mostly he hopes they are good stories.
Besides teaching and writing, Phil enjoys baseball (a long-suffering
Seattle Mariners fan), playing softball, and running in the Hood to
Coast Relay every August. He lives a mile from campus, which allows him
to walk to work most days.
