David E. Storey is Associate Professor of the Practice in the Philosophy Department at Boston College, where he teaches courses on the history of philosophy, ethics, theology, technology, and climate change. He received his PhD in philosophy in 2011 from Fordham University, is a certified Philosophical Counselor with the American Philosophical Practitioners Association, and is a certified Koru Mindfulness instructor.
His research and teaching interests are in environmental philosophy, climate change commmunication, integral metatheory, and contemplative pedagogy. He is the author of the book Naturalizing Heidegger: His Confrontation with Nietzsche, His Contributions to Environmental Philosophy (SUNY, 2015), has published essays in journals such as Environmental Ethics, Comparative and Continental Philosophy, and the New Atlantis.
In Spring 2020, David launched the podcast Wisdom at Work: Philosophy Beyond the Ivory Tower, where he interviews philosophers who left academia for new careers or do publicly engaged work, lets them tell their stories, and distills the keys to their success.
On his blog, the Dao Du Jour, David offers daily reflections on the zeitgeist through a chapter a day of the Daodejing.
His prime directive is to use skillful means to help philosophy in general, and integral in particular, “return to Plato’s cave” and be of use to as many people and institutions as possible during this critical period for our country, our civilization, our species, and our planet.

As the last week has made clear, we can’t afford to wait for the “perfect” solution to climate change to succeed amidst our raging culture war. 1/
We’re not really seeking common ground, we’re staking out a kind of higher ground wherein a more inclusive level of cultural solidarity can emerge. Notwithstanding America's hyperpolarization, we’re buoyed by our practice of virtues, which includes hope as a habit of the heart.
