Ariel LaFayette's portrait

Ariel LaFayette

Summer Associate

Ariel is an incoming Philosophy PhD student at the University of Toronto (UofT) and specializes in hermeneutics, phenomenology, the philosophy of religion, and the history of psychology. More broadly, she is interested in how the questions posed by seminal scholars (e.g., Augustine, Kierkegaard, Gadamer) continue to influence our investigations into self-knowledge, the limitations of reason, and personal fulfillment.

During Ariel’s undergraduate studies at UofT, she was a research fellow at the Centre for Ethics and the editor in chief of both UofT’s philosophy undergraduate journal and Canada’s national philosophy undergraduate journal. In the role of Summer Associate, Ariel is keen to adapt her academic research and writing abilities to an industry setting. When she is not working, you can find her at concerts, taking long walks, or watching movies.
