Clayton was a wonderful KBOO volunteer, his presence on the weekly Monday morning program 'The Old Mole variety Hour' will be sorely missed.

Rest in power, friend!

He was a philosophy professor at Lewis & Clark College for 36 years, and an author. His book is "Demystifying Demons: Rethinking Who and What We Are". Its purpose is to survey the territory of the unconscious where our inner demons live, and to do this for readers without previous background in psychological or philosophical theory. It proposes a way of thinking about our souls (psyches) that is broadly psychoanalytic but that remains closer to our ordinary experience than other presentations of psychoanalysis. The book is also more user friendly than explanations based on brain science. It is addressed directly to people who are disturbed by renegade thoughts and feelings (inner demons) they do not understand or control.

 

Here are some of the memories produced about and by Clayton:
