Etan Kuperberg recently graduated from Queens College of the City University of New York where he received a Bachelor of Arts double majoring in Philosophy and Jewish Studies. His primary interests are meta-ethics and bioethics, basing his approach to the study of ethics in general in a manner loosely analogous to Wittgenstein’s concept of language games. Ideally, Etan would like to go on to earn a PhD in Philosophy and earn a living as a professor due to an apparent masochistic desire to be dirt poor.
