Education and career[edit]

Frederick M. Dolan is Professor of Rhetoric, Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley.[1] He has also taught at the University of California, Irvine, the University of California, San Diego, Princeton University, California College of the Arts, and the Stanford Continuing Studies program. Dolan graduated from the University of California, Irvine (B.A., M.F.A.) and obtained the Ph.D. at Princeton University, where he studied under Sheldon Wolin and Richard Rorty.[2]

Philosophical orientation[edit]

Dolan explains his development as follows: "When I joined Berkeley's Department of Rhetoric in 1988, it was something of an intellectual wildlife preserve that sheltered scholars in many fields including literature, film, history of ideas, law, politics, and sociology as well as philosophy. Thanks partly to that I’ve worked on a variety of topics over the years, including political and moral philosophy, philosophy of art, philosophy of mind, hermeneutics, and American politics and culture. I’m a strong believer in liberal education and the study of the great books of the Western canon, but I also have an amateur's interest in the religion, art, and literature of India, China, and Japan."[3]
