Taylor Barinka

Biography:  

I’m Taylor Barinka. I received my BA in Classics at the University of Michigan, before studying for the MSt in Ancient Philosophy at Oxford. I then spent one year in Cornell University’s Classics Department as a PhD student. I was not destined to remain long at Cornell, however; I came to feel that I would be more at home in a Philosophy department than in Classics, and I am happy now to be starting the program in Philosophy at Toronto. My research is in Greek philosophy. I am principally interested in the metaphysics and psychology of Plato, Aristotle, and Plotinus. In my spare time I like to practise my Greek and German, crack open an audiobook, and go running.
