John Flodstrom

Professor Emeritus

John retired in 2000 and is currently living on the West Virginia campus of Maharishi University in a very fulfilling program of meditation and study. He passes much time in dialogue with Ken Chandler, a philosopher working in Vedic literature, pondering experience of the world that is more than just sensory, a higher level of consciousness the latter thinks he finds in ancient Greek philosophy. John also finds a close study of Kant’s Opus Postumum greatly rewarding. He returns to India every couple of years for five or six months every couple of years to meditate and study. Gardening and visiting family and friends, he tells us, rounds out the full life he currently enjoys.

Melvin E. Greer

Professor Emeritus

Melvin retired from the University in 1998 after thirty-seven years at U of L and the transition enabled him and his partner Tony Trulock to focus their attention on their lake front property in western Kentucky. Lots of time for reading but keeping the buildings, roads, and machinery in repair is a full time job. The result is acres of well-mowed grass and beautiful fences. It’s the life of a philosopher turned country squire.
