Casey Ford

Casey Ford is an Instructor and PhD Candidate in the Department of Philosophy at University of Guelph. He has taught previously in Philosophy & Religion at Marlboro College. His research and teaching interests are in the history of philosophy, 19th and 20th century European philosophy, and the tradition of ontology widely construed. His dissertation work focuses on the role of becoming in the ontological projects of G. W. F. Hegel and Gilles Deleuze. At present he is particularly interested in the ways that ethical thought in the Western philosophical tradition has intersected with ontological problems, especially those concerning the nature of the self and the world as the condition and limitation of action. He has written and presented on, and been profoundly influenced by, the thought of Deleuze and the task of taking seriously the role that difference and becoming play in our experience, thought, and the philosophical accounts we give of the world. With Suzanne McCullagh he is the co-director of The City Seminar, an annual seminar and pedagogy project in the history of philosophy for graduate and postgraduate scholars in North America.
