In his previous years, Dr. McBride taught at Yale University for nearly a decade and has lectured at Northwestern University, Sofia University in Bulgaria and the Korcula Summer School.

Dr. McBride has also been recognized by several elite organizations for his exemplary work in the field including Who's Who in America; Who's Who in America Education; Who's Who in the Midwest; Who's Who in the World. Having been the first American Secretary General and then President of the International Federation of Philosophical Societies (FISP), and with all the international connections that led to these positions and to which they, in turn, have led, Dr. McBride has established himself as a prominent figure in professional philosophy.
An illustrious published writer, Dr. McBride is the author of several written works including "From Yugoslav Praxis to Global Pathos," "Social and Political Philosophy," and "Social Theory at a Crossroads."
