My concentration in philosophy is computer ethics (which is more properly called cyberethics since microchips are in many everyday objects) because I am interested in how recent emergent technologies are not only challenging traditional morals and principles, but changing our morals. Traditional western philosophical ethics show their insufficiency to give political and moral guidance in light of these technologies and I am working on a novel ethics that will address this increasingly desperate need for the 21st century. Besides possessing a deep interest in ethics I have pursued wisdom through studying the sacred scriptures of most spiritual belief systems. It is a blessing for me to teach ethics and eastern philosophies.
