Author: Robert L Shearer

Robert L. Shearer has been a professor of philosophy and music for over three decades at Florida Tech, where he also teaches cultural history and logic. A published poet, he is also a writer of cultural history; in 2003 he won the Thomas M. Campbell Award for Best Paper for his article "Mathematics and the Mind of God: Implications of the New Cosmology of the 17th Century," published in The Florida Conference of Historians Annual Proceedings. A musician, he has performed as a pianist (and composer) in public recitals and concerts, including having performed the D-Minor Keyboard Concerto of Johann Sebastian Bach with an orchestra at Villa Vizcaya in Miami (1985) in a concert he sponsored to honor the third centenary of the composer's birth. He is currently working on a book on the philosophy of mathematics—when not out sailing his home-built sloop, the Neurotic Dolphin.
