My name is Ben Nelson. I am a doctor of philosophy (2017) who has taught at postgraduate institutions for four years. My primary research work is in the philosophy of law and the philosophy of the social sciences. I currently live and work in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada as an independent researcher.
Drafts of my papers in philosophy of law are under embargo during the review process, and so cannot be linked here. However, I also write and research in metaphysics, mind, epistemology, and meta-philosophy. You can read some of my polished drafts here.
As an instructor, I focus on nurturing intellectual autonomy while also fostering an appreciation for objective inquiry. I aim to empower students by cultivating the skills of critical thinking, cooperative dialogue, and theoretical imagination.
