Bryan McCarthy, DPhil

  • Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy

A 2002 Pitt-Greensburg alumnus, Dr. McCarthy teaches Post-Kantian Philosophy, Eastern Thought, Philosophy of Religion, and Business Ethics. In his scholarship, he focuses on how material things augment or hinder authentic religiosity and spirituality. Currently, this has two prongs: phenomenology of clothing and the religiosity of psychedelic medicine. He is working on a monograph about the extent to which our clothing shapes our self-experience and how this impacts religious and spiritual pursuits. Dr. McCarthy also recently published "Christianity and Psychedelic Medicine: A Pastoral Approach" and has a number of studies and articles on this topic in progress.
