Biographical Notes:

Janet Sisson has been the President of the Apeiron Society since 2011. She has been studying philosophy for over 50 years and has two degrees from the University of Oxford. Her interest in philosophy arises from an interest in questions that have exercised humans for millennia, especially the relations between methods of inquiry in various fields. In her Ph.D. from the University of Calgary, she investigated ethical inquiry and mathematical discussion in Plato. She has taught at the Universities of Oxford, Leicester, Glasgow, Kansas, Alberta, Calgary and Mount Royal University. She has now retired from teaching.
