As a former student of Prof. Dove's, I have dedicated this website to his work and his lasting influence on my 'second nature' of philosophical thinking nurtured in the classrooms of SUNY Purchase. It started with a desire to digitize his dissertation in order to facilitate further study of the Phenomenology and became a project to 'publish' and preserve in one place the full breadth of Prof. Dove's work.
