W. Russ Payne

I am chair of the Philosophy Department at Bellevue College where I’ve taught since 2000. My philosophical interests are diverse, including metaphysics, the philosophy of science, meta-ethics, environmental ethics, moral psychology, love and the nature of the emotions more generally.

This site includes a few papers in the category of research, a good deal of writing for students, including a complete Introduction to Philosophy text for my PHIL& 101 students and some short public philosophy pieces.

Thanks for visiting. I’m best reached at this email:
