Paul Simard SmithMr. Simard Smith thinks back fondly to the interesting and enthusiastic conversations at the Windsor Philosophy Club while working toward the completion of his MA here in 2007. After finishing his PhD in Philosophy at the University of Waterloo, Logic In Context: An Essay on the Contextual Foundations of Logical Pluralism, he taught at Campion College and the University of Regina in Saskatchewan for a year. Dr. Simard-Smith received a two year SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) Post-doctoral Fellowship to study logical pluralism and its implications for certain issues in epistemology, philosophy of language, argumentation theory, and metaphysics at the University of Connecticut. He co-authored, "Resources for Research on Analogy: a Multi-disciplinary Guide." Informal Logic, 29, no. 2, pp. 84-197 with Dr. Marcello Guarini. With Andrei Moldovan also in Informal Logic he published "Arguments as Abstract Objects" and a publication with Rachel McKinnon in Philosophia, titled "Sure the Emperor Has No Clothes But You Shouldn't Say That.”
