about the author

Dr. Scalambrino is presently constructing a series of public seminars in philosophical psychology. With a penchant for the history of Western philosophy he regularly teaches metaphysics, ethics, critical thinking, and existentialism (including Samurai and Zen philosophy toward what he calls an “Eastern existential ethics of sincerity”). An award-winning author and professor, he has been recognized for excellence as an educator in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Texas, and Ohio.

In 2003 he founded a Community Mental Health Suicide Prevention Respite Unit and Clinical Intervention Center; he subsequently received awards from multiple mental health agencies across the local, county, and state levels of Ohio, and, in the same year, was inducted into Chi Sigma Iota, the international counseling honor society.

He has worked in various direct service provision and leadership capacities in mental health counseling, psychiatric emergency rooms, and trauma settings (including, but not limited to, Mercy Medical Center in Canton, Ohio and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Braddock, Pennsylvania). As an undergraduate, he was the starting quarterback and a team captain of the Kenyon College football team.

In determining his projects as an author, he believes:
“Empty is the word of that philosopher by whom no affliction of men is cured. For as there is no benefit in medicine if it does not treat the diseases of the body, so with philosophy, if it does not drive out the affliction of the soul.” ~Epicurus, “Fragment 54,” Cyril Bailey (Translation).
