My name is Ben Nelson. I currently live in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

I have a PhD in philosophy (2017). I have taught undergraduate courses for four years as an instructor (sole responsibility). My research work was in the philosophy of law and the philosophy of the social sciences. I currently do freelance work.

The ALECS blog is my place for thinking through tough issues on selected topics related to arts, law, ethics, cognition, and society. I also write and research in metaphysics, mind, epistemology, and meta-philosophy. You can read some of my polished drafts here. Comments warmly welcome!

Oh! And I am also a sketch hobbyist.
