Nicholas Bradley “Buddy” Michael Griffiths II is a convoluted combination of various interests and competencies who wrote a logic text because there weren’t any available that suited his needs. Buddy debated between philosophy and biochemistry when entering college and chose biochemistry as he was accepted into the great books honors program, the Torrey Honors Institute which included some great philosophical and humanities content. Torrey made him love the humanities much more than he expected, so he kept studying them on his own and having conversations with friends and acquaintances about everything from epistemology to rap. He continued his education by studying philosophy and history of science and will have completed his master’s degree in December 2015. He has taught formally in the humanities, logic, economics, and the hard sciences since 2006. Know Thyself
