My goal as a teacher is to train my students in the art of philosophical conversation. To accomplish this, I assign shorter, more focused readings; in-class writing prompts to help students gather their thoughts before discussing a topic; student in-class presentations, where students have to present an analysis of the day’s reading along with an accompanying handout and questions for in-class discussion; and student objection assignments, where students have to come up with an objection on a reading and present it to the class for discussion. You'll see these strategies employed in the syllabi below. 

 

My teaching strengths include Ancient, Medieval, Ethics, Classical Chinese Philosophy, and Phenomenology.

 

Here's my teaching statement, student evaluations, and full teaching dossier
