Joseph Zepeda is Associate Professor at Saint Mary’s College of California, where he teaches as a tutor in the Integral Program of Liberal Arts, a four-year Great Books curriculum. A graduate of Thomas Aquinas College, he completed his doctorate in History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Notre Dame. His published work focuses on the relations between scientific and philosophical thought in the Scientific Revolution, and more broadly on the history of philosophy. His early publications focused on Descartes and his natural philosophy; more recently he has written on Galileo’s treatment of science and Scriptural interpretation. Dr. Zepeda lives in the (extended) San Francisco Bay Area with his wife Julie and their eight children.
