US Grade 8 - 11
I have a PhD in the Philosophy of Religion from McGill University.  My comprehensive exams for my doctorate were on Nietzsche and Schopenhauer.  My dissertation examined their influence on the philosopher Albert Schweitzer.  My subsequent research continued this work by bringing all these philosophers into dialogue with Descartes, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Heidegger, Derrida, and Camus.  This research was then published in a title from McGill-Queens University Press, and in a follow-up book with Fortress Academic Press.  I have also taught several undergraduate and graduate courses in philosophy and ethics at university as well.
