St. George,

Biography:

  • Honours BSc (with high distinction, Mathematics and Philosophy Specialist, Computer Science Minor), University of Toronto

Before finding his way to philosophy, Stanley studied a fair bit of pure mathematics, participated in quantitative research in empirical micro-economics, and worked as a TA in both computer science and mathematics. It took him until the penultimate year of his undergraduate studies to realize that deep down, he was primarily intrigued by the philosophical questions in these disciplines. More recently, he also became interested in legal philosophy, moral philosophy, and related issues surrounding scientific methods, technology law, and intellectual property. Besides grappling with never-ending philosophical angst, Stanley loves good books, comedies, old pop songs, neo-Western films, medium-rare steaks, tennis, and minigolf (although he is not good at any sports).

Research Interests:
