Jurgis (George) Brakas received his A.B. in philosophy from Princeton University and his M.Phil. and Ph.D. in philosophy from Columbia University. He began teaching at Marist College in 1990; in the fall of 2013, he retired to pursue research and writing full time. His areas of specialization are Aristotle and ancient Greek philosophy; Rand; logic and the philosophy of logic; and ethics and meta-ethics. He is currently working on a second book: Aristotle on the Good. It will attempt to reconstruct Aristotle’s view of the nature and foundation of the good–the good in general, not just the human good.
