About Professor John Cuddeback
A husband and father, a philosophy professor, and a man on a search.
I relish common sense and sanity, a down-home wisdom that others regularly cast off.
In my quarter century as a philosophy professor I’ve been exposed to much wisdom. I try to assimilate it, and I want to share what I have found.
I have known the struggles of being a husband, father, friend, employee, and citizen in very confusing times. The travails of the household—mother, children, father, and others—especially consume my attention.
I seek refreshing and revitalizing waters from a good place. Peaceful, yet challenging. Silent, but powerful. Old as the hills, and exactly what we need today. I want to reconnect you with what you already knew, somehow, somewhere. It’s deep within us, and we need to find it.
My goal is a more fully human life. Lived together in community and relationship.
Join me for a few moments each week.
