Tim Engström is a New York stater who studied initially in New York, then in Sweden, Britain, and Germany—Tübingen and Göttingen—then went back to Edinburgh, Scotland, for his Ph.D. When not inside, he’s outside; when not teaching, reading or writing, he tinkers with an old house or old stuff or travels to avoid having to fix the old stuff. He taught first at the University of Hawaii before coming to RIT, where he’s been since 1988. He prefers the Adirondacks to strip malls, skiing to faculty meetings, fictional truth to logical truth, old vehicles to new vehicles, some philosophy books to other philosophy books.
