Teaching

I approach the teaching of philosophy with a couple of goals in mind. There is, I think, a tremendous value in imparting pieces of intellectual history to my students, but it is just as important to me that they come to appreciate that doing philosophy is a skill worth practicing. By learning how to engage with a philosophical text and formulate a reasoned position, each of my students is able to benefit from my teaching in one way or another.

Here are some of the highlights of my teaching at the University of Toronto:

– In 2018-2019, I will be the instructor for three courses:

PHL210: 17th-and 18th-Century Philosophy
PHL341: Freedom, Responsibility, and Human Action
PHL307: Augustine

– In Summer 2016, I taught PHL100: Introduction to Philosophy

– I have also been a teaching assistant for the following courses:

PHL275: Introduction to Ethics
PHL245: Modern Symbolic Logic
PHL210: 17th-and 18th-Century Philosophy
PHL205: Early Medieval Philosophy
PHL206: Later Medieval Philosophy
PHL100: Introduction to Philosophy
