Biography

Michael Berheide received his B.A. In Political Science from Ohio Northern University in 1976 and his Ph.D. From Indiana University in 1984, with a dissertation entitled “Methodology and Metaphysics: Karl Popper and the Practice of Political Science.” He came to Berea in 1981, and is currently Professor and Chair of the Department. He teaches Introduction to the Study of Politics, Research Methods, American Constitutional Law, Formal Democratic Theory, Public Policy and Administration, Senior Research Seminar, Natural Science, American Political Thought, and Contemporary Global Issues.

Dr. Berheide’s current research centers around a book manuscript tentatively entitled Deus Ludens: A Theodicy of God at Play, examining various social and political problems in the context of a developing theodicy. He enjoys playing music and cards, fishing and (watching) sports and long walks along the beach with “that someone special.”
