Esther L. Meek (Ph.D., Temple University; M.A., Western Kentucky University; B.A., Cedarville College) is Professor of Philosophy at Geneva College. She is also a Fellow with Artist Makoto Fujimura’s Fujimura Institute.
Her 2003 Longing to Know: The Philosophy of Knowledge for Ordinary People (Brazos) is a book for people considering Christianity who have questions about how we know anything at all. Her 2011 book, Loving to Know: Introducing Covenant Epistemology (Cascade), proposes the interpersonal covenantal relationship as the paradigm for all human knowing. A Little Manual for Knowing (Cascade, 2014) distills covenant epistemology into a how-to for any knowing venture in any field. Contact with Reality: Michael Polanyi’s Realism and Why it Matters is forthcoming from Cascade (2017).
Dr. Meek joined the Faculty of Geneva College in 2004. She and her colleague, Dr. Robert Frazier, make up the Philosophy Program in the Biblical Studies, Ministry and Philosophy Department. She also serves as Coordinator of the Humanities 303 Team.
The Philosophy Program’s Mission Statement is: “Engaging the philosophical conversation, honing critical skills and passions, cultivating wisdom for service, for living—in submission to Jesus Christ the Truth.”
Esther enjoys talking with and coaching people in all walks of life about how knowing works—artists, athletes, scientists, counselors, believers, parents, teachers, scholars, and pastors. She lives in Aliquippa, near Pittsburgh, PA.
