Ron Srigley is a writer and teacher. His work has appeared in The Walrus, The Los Angeles Review of Books, the MIT Technology Review, and L’Obs, as well as in a variety of scholarly journals. He teaches philosophy and religious studies at Laurentian University and in the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Humber College, Toronto. He is author of Albert Camus’s Critique of Modernity, Eric Voegelin’s Platonic Theology, and translator of Albert Camus’s Christian Metaphysics and Neoplatonism.
Recently his writing has focused on the state of contemporary universities. His essays “Dear Parents: Everything You Need To Know About Your Son and Daughter’s Education, But Don’t,” “Whose University Is It, Anyway?,” and “Learning the Hard Way” have helped to define the conversation about modern post-secondary education. “Dear Parents” was one of the LARB’s “most read” essays of 2016.
His scholarly books and articles have been influential in his field. His translation of Camus’s Christian Metaphysics and Neoplatonism made available in English a previously overlooked work in Camus’s oeuvre. And his Albert Camus’s Critique of Modernity redefined the field of Camus studies.
Srigley lives and teaches in Toronto and Charlottetown with his partner, Kate Tilleczek.
