Roger Gilman is Dean and Professor of Philosophy at Fairhaven College of Interdisciplinary Studies at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington (north of Seattle).
Gilman is one of the first graduates of Fairhaven College (1973); his graduate degrees are in the History of Science, the Philosophy of Science, and in Ethics, all from the University of Chicago. He specializes in evolutionary and ecological theory.
His research is located at the interface of biology and ethics--in environmental, medical, biotechnology, research ethics, and theories of human and nonhuman nature. He also writes on the philosophy of education.
He has just finished a book (out for review) in the philosophy of biology called The Ecology of Value. He also is the former editor of the Chicago Review, a literary journal, and is finishing a collection of poems. Roger is a birder and a hiker, a traveler and a gardener.
