Hi, I’m Sterling Lynch.
I like to refer to myself as a “lapsed academic.”
Even though I walked away from academia — or, more accurately, walked away from what academia has become — I still long for its best parts: the thinking, the writing, the research, the teaching, and the discussion — the community of ideas.
In the last few years, I have been using this blog to try and find or create that community of ideas I miss and long for so much.
So, if you miss and long for a community of ideas too or maybe have never experienced it but want to, please leave your comments or questions. I will respond to everyone but the trolls!
I have a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Auckland, a MA in Philosophy from the University of Calgary, a MA in Religion and Culture from Wilfrid Laurier University, and a BA (Honours) in Philosophy and Religion and Culture from Wilfrid Laurier University.
I live in Ottawa, which is on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory.
