Teaching Philosophy

I aim to foster active learning environments that support students in their continued philosophical growth, analyzing and applying relevant concepts from a contemporary perspective, in light of a historical conversation.

This vision is founded on three co-equal suppositions:

  • All students, by nature, are capable of learning and motivated to do so.

  • Education occurs more via empowerment and encouragement than impression and punishment.

  • The role of the Teacher is to mediate and guide discussions, both in-class and out-of-class.
