Donald Ainslie is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Member of the Joint Centre for Bioethics at the University of Toronto. His current research explores David Hume’s conception of the science of man and its connection to his scepticism. A second research project is an investigation of the philosophical foundations of bioethics.
Donald is an avid swimmer, and has recently started weight-training in an attempt to lower his time for the 100 meter butterfly. He is also the proud owner of a golden retriever and was happy to trade dog stories with Karen during his time at the Center in the fall of 2002.
