Philosophy begins in wonder, according to both Socrates and Aristotle. I was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia and I still wonder at the magical forests, mountains, and waterways of the Pacific Northwest. The wider world inspires wonder as well and I have an insatiable love of travel. I made a Christmas morning photo of the temples of Bagan in Myanmar the signature image of David Egan Philosophy. That image encapsulates for me the spirit of wonder, wisdom, and adventure that I aspire to bring to my online courses.
I have degrees in Philosophy from the University of Oxford, the University of Toronto, and Harvard University and have taught philosophy and the humanities at Oxford, the University of Chicago, and other institutions in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.
