John Thorp studied at Upper Canada College, at Trent University, and at Oxford. His first academic appointment was at the University of Ottawa, where he was chair of the Classics department. In 1992, he moved to UWO, where he has been chair of the Philosophy department. His research bears mostly on ancient and late antique thought, chiefly on Aristotle and on his neoplatonic interpreters, though he has also written on the free will problem and its intersection with neurophysiology. In 2003, he was awarded UWO’s Pleva Award for excellence in teaching. The Government of France has made him Chevalier dans l’ordre des palmes academiques. He is President of the Canadian Philosophical Association. John is currently an active member of the Anglican Church of Canada.
