Brooke Moore and Richard Parker have taught philosophy at California State University, Chico, for almost as long as they can remember. Moore has been that university s Outstanding Professor, and both he and Parker have received top academic honors on their campus. Moore has seen several terms as department chair, and Parker has served as chair of the academic senate and dean of undergraduate education.
Moore has a bachelor s degree in music from Antioch College and a PhD in philosophy from the University of Cincinnati; Parker did his undergraduate degree at the University of Arkansas and his PhD at the University of Washington, both in philosophy.
Moore has finally given up being the world s most serious amateur volleyball player. He and Marianne share their house and life with several dogs. He has never sold an automobile.
Parker gets around in a 1962 MG or on a Harley softail. He plays golf for fun, shoots pool for money, and plays guitar for a semiprofessional flamenco troupe. He gets to Spain as often as he is able.
The two have remained steadfast friends through it all. They are never mistaken for one another.
