Academic Background

Dr Simpson has a Bachelor of Applied Arts in filmmaking from what was then called Ryerson Polytechnical Institute and a Masters and PhD in philosophy from what was then called the University of Western Ontario. He worked for several years in the Toronto film industry, on both commercial and experimental or avant-garde works. He hosted a two-part Ideas program for CB Radio titled Colour: In the Mind's Eye.

He has taught at Western, Okanagan University College, the University of Guelph, the University of Ghana, and Laurier.

Additional Information
My areas of research are aesthetics, media ethics, technology and human nature, and the philosophy of science. I have edited a book of essays by people who have taught or presently teach in the Department of Philosophy and Classics at the University of Ghana. The book is in press and will be released in December, 2013. I am also editing a book on technology and ethics and working on several journal length articles.
