Adam Johnson received his B.A. in Philosophy (Math minor) from Virginia Tech in May of 2006, and a Post-Baccalaureate certificate in Classics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2009. He is broadly interested in studying ancient philosophy against a comprehensive background in Greek language, history, and literature, with particular research interests in the Pre-Socratics. He is convinced of the importance of studying these early thinkers in the contexts in which they have been transmitted, and is thus focused on the role Pre-Socratic fragments and testimonia play in the writings of
Aristotle, Sextus Empiricus, Plotinus, and Simplicius. Adam has additional interests in Aristotelian logic, and is also an enthusiastic reader of Greek poetry, especially Homer and Aeschylus. Adam Johnson.
