SIDELIGHTS: Allan Meyer told CA:“As a college philosophy teacher, I was not able to defend traditional views of morality and religion. I took notes on writings by Will Durant, B.F. Skinner, E.O. Wilson, Antonio Damasio, Richard Dawkins, and others. My background in literature, history, and arts helped make my writing style effective. Hard work and lots of library time did the rest.”
