Philosophers Among The New Canada Research Chairs
The Canadian Minister of State recently announced the recipients of 150 new and renewed “Canada Research Chairs.” Two new Canada chairs have been awarded to philosophers: Travis Dumsday (Concordia U. College of Alberta), who works in philosophy of science, metaphysics, philosophy of religion, and medieval, and Gregoire Webber (Queen’s University), who works on questions on human rights, public law, and the philosophy of law. Additionally, the Canada Research chair of Nicholas Griffin (McMaster), who works on Bertrand Russell, philosophical logic, epistemology, and 19th and 20th Century intellectual history, has been renewed.
The Canada Research Chairs Program was created in 2000 to help “attract and retain some of the world’s most accomplished and promising minds.” The full list of 2015 winners is here.
Travis Dumsday is at Concordia University College of Alberta (Edmonton, AB), not Concordia University (Montreal, QC).Report
