In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"As the recent Robert Downey, Jr. movie has clearly demonstrated, interest in all things relating to Sherlock Holmes remains strong. This is just as true at St. John Fisher College as anywhere else, where the immortal detective stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are taught in literature courses by Lisa Jadwin of the Department of English, and where Holmes‘ skills at deduction are discussed in philosopher David White‘s Basic Logic classes. Several other professors, including Donald Muench and Gerry Wildenberg in Mathematics, and Charles Natoli and yours truly in Philosophy, as well as alums such as Ray Ruff, also have an avid interest in the Great Detective. Indeed, we belong to the local Baker Street Irregulars chapter, Rochester Row, ably overseen by its leader, or ―Gasogene‖, Lewis Neisner, who guides us through our bimonthly gatherings."
