"There is no higher praise than to compare Vicchio's expression to Loren Eiseley & Annie Dillard at their best."
-St. Anthony Messenger
About the Book:
The mystery of love, miracle of birth, the joys of fatherhood, the senselessness of evil, battles over broccoli, and knowledge passed from teacher to student. This is the world through the eyes of Dr. Stephen Vicchio, whose essays on the human condition are compiled in The I of the Beholder. Dr. Vicchio's writings transcend boundaries to express that which is shared human experience. Recognized as Maryland's Professor of the Year, he teaches philosophy at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland.

"There are many ways of teaching, Stephen Vicchio extends his remarkable teaching career in these essays. From reading them and mulling them over, I have learned to see more clearly what my eyes behold, and to make the connections which distinguish me as a person. To every reader this is a gift."
