Matthew Siebert

I grew up mostly in a small rural town in Manitoba, Canada, and in the large capital city of Colombia, South America. I left my a high school teaching position in Winnipeg to study philosophy, and my graduate studies in Oxford (masters) and Toronto (PhD) have been focused on medieval philosophy and epistemology. I find the innovative social epistemologies of Augustine, Aquinas, Henry of Ghent, and Scotus fascinating, and I think they have something to contribute to the current debate on the nature of testimony. More generally, I’m interested in normative topics in ancient, medieval and early modern philosophy. I care most about topics that blend ethics and epistemology, like the topic of intellectual humility.
