About the Author

David Carl Wilson earned his PhD in philosophy from UCLA, where he taught for many years and served in several roles, including Associate Provost. A Guide to Good Reasoning grew out of his frequent teaching of UCLA’s large undergraduate course, Philosophy 9: Principles of Critical Reasoning, originated by David Kaplan. Wilson is currently Professor of Philosophy at Webster University, where he served as Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences for 14 years. He teaches in both the Philosophy and the Management Departments; his research concentrates on social philosophy, especially political philosophy and the philosophy of management and leadership, with a special interest in Machiavelli. He serves on the board of trustees of several major organizations; is on the executive editorial board of the academic journal Philosophy of Management; and is the Staff Philosopher for Tennessee Williams St. Louis.
