I’m Dr. Keith Buhler, a philosopher and classical educator based out of Los Angeles.
Welcome to my online hub for sharing new projects, connecting with people, and pursuing virtue, wisdom, truth, and beauty together.
On this site, you can follow The Buhler Report for dialog about timeless wisdom and current events. It features curated links, brief thoughts, and longer essays on the incredibly important themes of classical education, academic philosophy, and conservative politics.
You can also learn more about me and my academic work in virtue ethics, consider how and why to study philosophy. Finally, you can explore a bunch of fun stuff in the sandbox (including how to build a website like this for free). Thanks for reading.

Check out this new documentary by Nathan Jacobs, titled Becoming Truly Human. It will hit your interest on multiple levels – if you are religious, or not religious, or formerly religious, or simply curious about trends in American life.
I’ve seen the film and it is beautifully moving in ways that reveal more about the heights, and depths, of being human.
Watch the trailer on Patheos.
As Peter Chattawy on Patheos reports:
It used to be common for people to identify with a religious tradition, even if they weren’t very observant about it. But that is less and less the case these days, as studies have shown that an increasingly large percentage of the North American public has either given up on religion or never had it to begin with. Now filmmaker Nathan Jacobs has made a documentary that tells the stories of several “Nones” (so called because they tend to identify as “none of the above” on religious surveys), while articulating his own pilgrimage through None-ness to something else.
The film will be released August 22, 2017.
