Dr. Gabor Csepregi is currently a visiting scholar at St. Paul’s College, University of Manitoba, in Canada. He is past president of Université de Saint-Boniface (Winnipeg) and of Dominican University College (Ottawa). While devoting considerable time and energy to the fulfillment of his administrative duties, his academic career also focussed on intensive teaching and research activities. His scholarly works centered chiefly on the central questions of philosophical anthropology, especially on the phenomenological analysis of time, the human body, music, play, and education. His current project on the concept of presence is particularly relevant in a world that is marked by the tendency to fashion human perception and interaction through electronic devices. He is the author of The Clever Body and In Vivo: A Phenomenology of Life-Defining Moments. His latest book on Attitudes of Play will be published by McGill-Queen’s University Press in 2022. He received a Master’s degree in theology and a Doctoral degree in philosophy, both from Laval University (Quebec City). Before starting his academic career, he was an Olympic-level water-polo coach and player.
Visiting Fellow at MCC: February - April 2022; 2022 September 2022 - July 2023
