Raymond Angelo Belliotti is SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor of Philosophy at the State University of New York at Fredonia. He received his undergraduate degree from Union College in 1970, and served for three years in military intelligence units during the Vietnam War. Upon his discharge, he enrolled at the University of Miami where he earned his Master of Arts in 1976 and his doctorate in 1977. He also earned a juris doctorate from Harvard Law School in 1982.
He has been the recipient of the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching, the William T. Hagan Young Scholar/Artist Award, the Kasling Lecture Award for Excellence in Research and Scholarship, and the SUNY Foundation Research & Scholarship Recognition Award.
Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Raymond has authored Why Philosophy Matters: 20 Lessons on Living Large, which demonstrates that philosophy matters to everyday living and that people who ignore the enduring, fundamental questions of life thereby unwittingly relinquish part of their humanity.
Raymond explains his reasons for publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:
“I have published 20 books with 13 different publishers. My experience with Cambridge Scholars Publishing ranks among the best. They streamline the publishing process, avoid all unnecessary conflicts, and promptly and effectively respond to all enquiries. Cambridge Scholars were always receptive to my suggestions regarding format and cover design. They view the publishing process as a collaborative venture. In my judgement, Cambridge Scholars are a refreshing, innovative organisation that merits the attention and consideration of future authors.”
