We are delighted to welcome Jonathan Drake as one of the newest members to the Merlin Volunteer Crew. A Helena native, Jonathan received his B.A. in Religious Studies from the University of Montana and is volunteering while he applies to graduate school to further his study of new religious movements.
As part of his volunteer work, Jonathan will be regularly contributing to the resources library of our website and assisting in several of our philosophy in the community events.
Jonathan believes in applying the insights of critical theory and materialist analysis to power and culture, so that we might live a more deliberate life. In his free time he enjoys rereading the jacket cover of Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.
(Jonathan clearly has a sense of humor, taboot….notice his mention of “the jacket cover” of Hegel’s philosophical work. Good one, Jonathan!).
Check out Jonathan’s first contribution to our news & research page — a co-authored, informative piece about implicit bias!
