William B. Irvine

Professor of Philosophy Leading Expert on Stoicism

William B. Irvine is professor of philosophy at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. Irvine writes books on philosophy for an average audience. He says, “I am not interested, as most of my philosophical colleagues are, in writing primarily for other philosophers. Rather, my intended audience can best be described as intellectually-upscale general readers who have a minimal background in philosophy but who are interested in carefully rethinking the assumptions of everyday life.”
