Eric Steinhart’s "Fragments of the Dionysian Body"

Eric Steinhart's Biography

Eric Steinhart is Professor of Philosophy at William Paterson University. He works primarily on metaphysics using contemporary analytical and logical methods and tools. He is also interested in historical metaphysical systems (particularly Plotinus, Neoplatonism, and Leibniz). Though growing up on a farm, Steinhart became interested in computers and later trained as a computer scientist and mathematician, working for years as a software designer. Some of his algorithms have been patented. He holds an advanced degree in philosophy. His past work has concerned Nietzsche as well as metaphor (analyzed using possible worlds semantics) and has written extensively on the metaphysics and computation. He is featured in the film Chronotrip, a documentary about time travel. He has become increasingly interested in the philosophy of religion, focusing on the intersection of the formal sciences and theology, especially alternatives to Abrahamic religion. He affirms the existence of transfinitely endless hierarchies of sets, computers, languages, games, strategies, and minds. On a personal level, he likes New York City, New England, mountain hiking, all sorts of biking, chess, microscopy, and photography.––from Eric Steinhart's personal website
