About Faculty Master

Paul Kjellberg is a professor in the department of philosophy. He specializes in Chinese philosophy and Buddhism but teaches broadly in the western tradition, as well. In recent years he has focused on philosophy of education, on the theory and practice of liberal arts, and on the contributions of our Quaker heritage. He is joined at Hartley House by his son, Ford.

Our theme this year is the question, “What am I doing here?” We mean to help sophomores find majors, in particular, but it is a question anyone can ask. Events and programs at the house will be designed to focus on individual topics and to see them in the context of the larger world. Please consider Hartley House a place to think.
