Timothy L. Simpson is an associate professor of education at Morehead State University. He was born in Evansville, IN and lived in Kentucky and Tennessee during his youth. His single ambition in life was to play professional sports. Alas, neither the New York Yankees nor the Boston Celtics called him so he went to Morehead State University. There he had the fortunate opportunity to be blessed with inspiring professors, in particular Dr. L. Bradley Clough, who introduced him to the wonders of the psyche. Pursuing psychology and philosophy, he graduated a different person from when he began. He then left for Miami University to study philosophy with Dr. Peter Schuller who further instructed him in the wonder of philosophy through Socrates and Plato. With Plato's
, his focus turned to education and the soul. With guidance from Dr. Nicholas C. Burblues at the University of Illinois, he read and studied widely in the history and philosophy of education before focusing his research on the nature of democratic citizenship and our democratic republic. He continues to read deeply and widely regarding foundational educational questions and issues and shares that conversation with his students in a leisurely, but serious way. He teaches the history and philosophy of education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, he has taught in the Leadership Program, Honors Program and beginning in Fall 2014 will teach in the First Year Seminar Program. He loves to read great books, enjoy the outdoors, play darts and sports with friends, and spend time with family.
