Author Biography

Sharon M. Kaye is Professor of Philosophy at John Carroll University. She's the author of Black Market Truth (2008) a gratuitously erotic, pointlessly violent thriller about a lost work of Aristotle. Her other books are non-fiction, or so she claims. They include Medieval Philosophy (2008), Philosophy for Teens (with Paul Thomson, 2006), More Philosophy for Teens (with Paul Thomson, 2007), On Ockham (with Robert Martin, 2001), and On Augustine (with Paul Thomson, 2001). Professor Kaye has published numerous scholarly articles in academic journals, as well as mediocre cartoons in publications of dubious repute, including The Philosopher's Magazine and the volume you now clutch in your sweaty fingers.
