Dan Sportiello

Viewpoint Staff | Monday, January 16, 2012

Dan Sportiello is in his fourth year of graduate study in philosophy at the University of Notre Dame–the institution from which he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the same subject. While his interests are broad, he is soon to take his oral exam in the history of ethics. He is especially interested in the relationship between theoretical and practical reason–and in the relationship of both to the historical circumstances in which they are taught and exercised. His column, Bound Variables, is a biweekly philosophical meditation upon those aspects of our lives here at Notre Dame that go otherwise unnoticed.
