andrew Pessin


Andrew Pessin is Professor of Philosophy at Connecticut College, with degrees from Yale and Columbia—though he is most popular with his students for his appearances as “The Genius” on the Late Show with David Letterman. He has published many academic articles and two academic books, as well as three philosophy books and one audio course aimed at a general audience. Most recently he has written a novel (inquiries welcome, especially from those interested in publishing it!). In his spare time he composes and performs amusing philosophy songs.  (Of course, with three small children—not to mention a deeply disturbed cat—he no longer has much spare time these days.)
