Dr. Gilburt Goffstein is assistant professor. He is a co-founder of Radford University’s Peace Studies Program. He received the 2017-2018 Gilburt Goffstein Award in Teaching Excellence in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies.

Dr. Goffstein’s teaching, research and personal interests come together in the exploration of human liberation. This begins with a Freudo-Marxist interpretation of G. H. Mead’s social behaviorism and culminates in critical communicative spirituality that incorporates the interplay of the thought of Jurgen Habermas and the practice of Zen Buddhism. Dr. Goffstein’s other passions include the game of Go and the city of Paris.
