Bio/Research

Dr. Louis Greenspan, Emeritus Professor in the Department of Religious Studies and a founding member of the Arts & Science Program, teaches ARTS&SCI 2A06 / Modern Western Thought. In 1967, Dr. Greenspan came to McMaster, where he has maintained a research focus on the work of Bertrand Russell, the subject of his Ph.D. dissertation. He was Director of the Bertrand Russell Editorial Project from 1994 to 1997 and its managing editor from 1986 to 1994. He also chaired the Bertrand Russell Archives Copyright Permissions Committee, and served as a co-editor of volume 14 of the Collected Papers.

Dr. Greenspan has also conducted research on modern liberal thought and on religion and secularism in the post-war period. At McMaster, he has taught courses related to this research--in Jewish History in the Modern Age, for example—and continues to be an active lecturer, panelist, and guest speaker in various settings both in North America and abroad.
