I have taught philosophy courses in Canada and in France, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The philosophical classroom has always been — and I suspect will always be — the place where I feel the most comfortable and have the most fun.
At San José State University, I am currently teaching two upper-division philosophy courses : Science, Technology & Human Values and Computers, Ethics & Society. As these course are general education requirements, most of my students are not philosophy majors, and one of my greatest pleasures in life is to see those who thought they knew nothing about philosophy - or that they would hate it - engage with a philosophical problem or theory that really speaks to them.
Below is a list of courses I have taught and of undergraduate students I have supervised during my time at the Sorbonne.
