James Dean Millikan
|In April, 2011, PhilosophyCenter established the James Dean Millikan Endowment (JDME) in memory of an indelible philosophy professor, gifted visual artist, and beloved friend, Dr. James Millikan—"Jimi" to those close to him, who passed from this world on 29 March, 2011 at his home in Forestville, California, just as the clouds were parting from a series of storms. Through this Endowment, we're able to offer individuals in situations of financial need a 20% subsidy on all PhilosophyCenter offerings to those whose primary work is humanitarian or environmental as well as to professional artists and students currently enrolled full-time in an accredited institution. To request a special pricing voucher code, please use the contact link at the bottom of this page.

|We’d like to acknowledge some outstanding individuals for their invaluable contributions to our work, most notably Dr. Jimi Millikan, gifted philosopher, advisor, and lifelong friend who taught us to practice philosophy not merely academically but as Socrates did, "in the marketplace." We also would like to express our deep appreciation for Dr. Tom Hanna, inspiring professor and somatics pioneer, who instilled in his students an abiding love for ancient Greek thought and its profound and enduring relevance. Dennis Hays, longtime friend, colleague, and talented philosophical life coach, has been and remains a uniquely valuable ally and resource. Finally, these acknowledgments must include a debt of gratitude to the immortal Socrates himself, declared by the Delphic Oracle to be the wisest of men in knowing that he knew nothing. If there ever has been a greater teacher in the history of Western culture, he has yet to be discovered.|
