Dr Tor Shaul
Kings College London
I received my BA (2006) in Classics and my MPhil (2007) and PhD (2011) in ancient philosophy at St. John’s College, Cambridge. My MPhil work concentrated on ancient Greek Pyrrhonian scepticism. My doctoral dissertation (awarded the Hare Prize) was entitled Mortal and Divine in Early Greek Epistemology and focused in particular on the epistemologies and theologies of Hesiod, Xenophanes and Parmenides in their historical and cultural contexts. Before joining the Departments of Philosophy and Classics at King’s, I was a Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College, Cambridge (2010-2012).
