Prof. Scott Yenor earned his Ph.D. from Loyola University Chicago in 2000 and
now teaches political philosophy at Boise State University. His book, "Family Politics:
The Idea of Marriage in Modern Political Thought,"was published by Baylor University
Press in 2011. The book explores how family politics argues that marriage is more
than a contract, though the perspective of contract has come to dominate Western
thinking. Prof. Yenor has been trying, however imperfectly, to reduce this teaching
to practice as he lives and loves his wife, Amy, and their five children.
