Brandon Dahm is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Franciscan University of Steubenville. He received his B.A. in philosophy from Iowa State University in 2005 and his M.A. in philosophy from Southern Evangelical Seminary in 2011. During his M.A., he took a year off to read St. Thomas Aquinas’s Summa Theolgiae at the University of Cambridge. He then, finally, finished his degrees in 2016 with his PhD from Baylor University. Dr. Dahm wrote his dissertation under Thomas Hibbs on how we can have positive knowledge of a transcendent God. His other research is primarily on Aquinas’s moral philosophy, philosophy of religion, and the nature of virtue and vice.
Dr. Dahm is married to his wife, Andrea, a graphic designer and illustrator, and has two daughters, Beatrice and Esther, who don’t have jobs yet. In addition to doing philosophy, Dr. Dahm loves to cook, hang-out, and watch movies with his family and is an unrepentant coffee snob. In 2013, Brandon and Andrea became Catholic (the long version is told in Evangelical Exodus) and are very happy to be a part of Franciscan University.
