About & Contact



Hello! My name is Brian Geiger. I’m the founder of the online literary magazine Vita Brevisand I’m an undergraduate student at the University of South Florida (USF), studying psychology in pursuit of becoming a psychotherapist. I also work as a research assistant in our Department of Psychology, which is really fascinating.

This website is largely a collection of book and essay summaries I write when I find the time. Frankly, I’m not sure who would want to read it, but I’m glad some of you are enjoying yourselves! I mainly use the site piece apart and digest some of the more complicated texts I find interesting–and I’d like to think it helps me improve my writing, as well.

Most of my reading right now is relevant to existential-humanistic psychotherapy and philosophy, but I read my share of scientific nonfiction as well.

Feel free to contact me below, should you want to:

  1. Brian: Thanks for Taking a look at my blog and blogettes, I guess “Aristotle” really caught your eye or search. I have always heard that USF had a pretty good philosophy department. It almost seems weird talking about philosophy here in the South; seems like it is something for Ivy-League schools, or dark-halled academia. I hope that your following builds, and that some others will be open to your thoughts and written opinions. At one time, in a land far far away, I was a philosophy-theology major. A time gone by. Now I have but memoriesofatime. ((PS: I did teach some humanities, and a bit of ethics, so I did enjoy your writings even more. FYI: I belong to the Church of Hopeful Uncertainty…)

    1. Philosophy is really fascinating! I’m not part of the philosophy department here at USF, being a psychology major, but I’ve spoken to some of the professors and they seem great. Philosophy is becoming much more than a hobby for me. It’s really becoming a passion, one which almost parallels psychology. I’m glad you enjoyed my posts and decided to reach out to me. You taught humanities and ethics? That’s excellent! Educators are more than admirable. Please keep in touch. It was great to hear from you. P. S. I find myself siding with existentialist thought, but only with about a quarter of Sartre’s passion

Any thoughts?
