Dr. Seely is the author of Stones: Meditations on Human Authenticity, from Big Table Publishing, which recently won a National Indie Excellence Award. He is also a social critic, professional educator, and cognitive psychologist. His essays have appeared in Fifth Estate Magazine, Free Inquiry, Sky Island Journal, Snowy Egret, and at NatureWriting.com.

I am grateful to have had the opportunity to interview Dr. Seely and to learn more about his thoughts on cancer, civilization, counterfactual thinking, and his unexpected muse, the opossum.
