Andy Norman


Email: anorman@cmu.edu


Andy Norman teaches philosophy at Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Mellon University. He works on the conceptual and historical foundations of humanism and is a skilled facilitator of collaborative inquiry. He has published widely on the nature of reason and the teaching of wisdom, and written books on critical thinking and the structure of dialogue.

Andy is also a serial entrepreneur: his educational software company built an early “thought processor” for strengthening reasoning skills, and he currently runs popular character education programs for children. 

Andy is the former Director of CMU’s Ethics, History and Public Policy program, and is interested in constructive engagement with the religious & in developing naturalistic alternatives to destructive religious mythologies. 

He speaks regularly on such topics as reason and faith, science and religion, the foundations of ethics, and the evolutionary, cultural, and attitudinal roots of prosocial behavior. 

Honoraria and travel expenses are usually negotiated on an individual basis.
