Doug Muder, a columnist for uuworld.org, writes about religion and politics with a focus on attempts to bridge conflicts of worldview. His articles have appeared in UU World, Religious Humanism, The Humanist, and Public Eye.
He blogs about politics under the pseudonym Pericles for Daily Kos and writes the religious blog Free and Responsible Search. He is working on an introduction to Unitarian Universalism for Skinner House Books tentatively titled Unitarian Universalism 101: A Newcomer's Guide.
Doug is currently in his third career, having already been a mathematician (Ph.D., University of Chicago, 1984) and an author of books about computer software (including the over-optimistic VRML for Dummies with fellow UU David Kay, 1996). He is a member of First Parish Unitarian Universalist in Bedford, Massachusetts, and lives in Nashua, New Hampshire.
