Biography

Born in Montreal, Canada, Mark Samberg graduated from Concordia University with a double major in Philosophy and Liberal Arts.

He then earned a master's degree and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Greek Philosophy from the University of Chicago. The focus of his research is the way in which the rule of law operates in Plato's later legal theory. His publication, ‘Law and Politics in Plato's Statesman' (in Polis: the Newsletter of the Society for the Study of Greek Political Thought, Vol. 12, Nos 1&2, 1993), was based on a talk presented at the III Symposium Platonicum at the University of Bristol in 1992. In 1993 he published ‘Review of Perseus 1.0, Multi-media Library of Integrated Sources for the Study of Ancient Greece', in Computers and the Humanities 27: 409-414.

Mark loves teaching at Oakton, composing music, and spending time with his family.
