Ron Srigley is a writer and teacher. His work has appeared in The Walrus, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Education Canada, the MIT Technology Review, Canadian Dimension, and L’Obs, as well as in a variety of scholarly journals. He teaches philosophy and religious studies 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 the LARB’s “most read” essays of 2016, Wose University Is It, Anyway.
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 in Owen Sound with his partner, Kate Tilleczek.
