Greetings! My name is Brent Dean Robbins, if you haven't figured it out by now,
and this is my "All About Me" page at my web site, Mythos & Logos.
It is nice to know that you care enough to find out who I am and what I look like.
Here's a picture of my son and I:
I am a recipient of the Harmi Carari Early Career Award for Inquiry, granted by the Society for Humanistic Psychology (Division 32 of the American Psychological Association). My areas of research include the phenomenology of emotion, humor, self-consciousness, religion/spirituality, death anxiety, embodiment, and the medicalization of the body. His clinical research has been especially focused on an existential-phenomenological approach to treatment, which is informed by Maurice Merleau-Ponty's flesh ontology. Additional areas of clinical and research interest include panic disorder other anxiety disorders. I am a strong proponent of epistemological diversity, and a significant portion of my scholarship includes work in the philosophy of science, especially phenomenological and Goethean approaches to science.
