Andrew Fuyarchuk was awarded an MA. in philosophy from the University of Alberta (1998), a research doctorate in philosophy of religion from the Toronto School of Theology (2016) and an M.A. in education from Canisius College, Buffalo (2019). He has completed his A.B.D. for a PHD in philosophy at the Institute for Christian Studies.
He was thrown into teaching in 1999 when he was hired on short notice to replace a teacher at St. Andrew’s College in Aurora. Shortly afterwards, he completed his requirements for Ontario Teacher’s College. Over the last twenty years, he has taught dozens of courses in the humanities and social sciences. While his area of specialization is Plato, Heidegger and Gadamer, the questions he has posed have led to relevant connections with theories about the evolution of the mind, language, music and the classical philosophy of Neo-Confucianism.
Fuyarchuk has published seventeen peer reviewed papers and presented research at dozens of conferences in Canada, the U.S. and China, mostly in conjunction with the North American Society for Philosophical Hermeneutics and the International Society of Chinese Philosophy. He is assistant to the Managing Editor and Book Review Editor for The Journal of Chinese Philosophy, which is committed to East-West comparative philosophy. He has been an invited reviewer for Journal for the British Society of Phenomenology and Rendezvous: Journal of Arts and Letters.
Alongside his academic life, Fuyarchuk is committed to making positive contributions to civil society. This is reflected in work he has done for service organizations including the Markham Lion’s Club and Markham Village Conservancy. In general, he directs his attention to heritage and environmental projects. Last year, he was awarded Support for Scholarly Activity Funding to create a documentary on turtle poaching and conservation – an issue to which he had been committed for the previous six years.
