Brendan Myers is the author of thirteen books in fiction and nonfiction. He has taught philosophy at six different institutions in Canada and in Europe, and provided policy research for government agencies, labour unions, and game design studios. In 2012, prompted by the excessive prices of college textbooks, he ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to produce a texbook in logic and critical thinking, which he made available to the world for free. Myers' ideas have been featured by the Pacific Business & Law Institute, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, the Order of Bards Ovates & Druids, as well as numerous environmental groups, interfaith groups, and humanist societies around the world. Originally from Elora, Ontario, and a graduate of Guelph's BA Drama and MA Philosophy programme, Brendan now serves as professor of philosophy at CEGEP Heritage College, in Gatineau, Quebec.

This video was recorded at TEDxGuelphU - Inside Out in November 2013. TEDxGuelphU is a student-organized TEDx event held annually at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario. Each year we highlight emerging ideas, movements and talent from the University and surrounding community. For more information visit our website at www.tedxguelphu.com.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
