Tim Simpson, professor and chair of the Department of Foundational and Graduate Studies in Education (FGSE) at Morehead State University, along with co-author and retired Hillsdale College professor Dr. Jon Fennell, had their paper, “Epistemological Foundations of Liberal Education for Democratic Life” accepted by the North American Association for Philosophy of Education (NAAPE) to be presented in Fall 2020 via remote session. 

NAAPE allows scholars worldwide that work in both education and philosophy a forum to address the practical challenges of teaching and learning. 

“We seek to explore the epistemological foundations of liberal education and the purpose and meaning of education for democratic life through the work of renowned philosopher of education Harry S. Broudy and world-class scientist and philosopher Michael Polanyi,” Simpson said. “I am delighted to represent Morehead State University at a premier, national philosophy of education conference.”
