Hello, my name is Stephen Carter.
I have lived in the North Florida area for the last 20 years and currently live in Ormond by the Sea, Florida. My wife (Donita) and I have been married for 47 years and we have two married daughters and four grandchildren.
I have taught at several of the educational institutions in the Jacksonville, Florida area including both Edward Water's College in Jacksonville and Bethune Cookman University in Daytona Beach, Florida.
I received my Ph.D. degree in philosophy from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois in 1987. For my Bachelor’s degree, I attended Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois from 1968 to 1972.
While teaching in Jacksonville, Florida, I was able to attend Princeton University as an NEH Fellow in Classics in 1989. During the summer of 1994, I attended the University of California, Berkeley as a Summer Visiting Fellow. I was invited to the University of Notre Dame for an NEH Summer Scholarship in Medieval Humanities in 1995.
Also, in 1996 I attended the National Center for Humanities in Raleigh, North Carolina for their seminar Culture Wars and American Democracy. In March of 2009 and in March of 2011, I spoke at the Oxford Roundtable in Ethics, Oxford, England.
