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.
I will be teaching the following courses at StFX.
PHIL100: Introductory Philosophy
PHIL251: Critical Thinking
PHIL232: Human Nature II
PHIL362: Later Medieval Philosophy
Here are the highlights of my teaching at the University of Toronto:
