I'm the currently the Managing Editor at The Ottawa Citizen. I'm a newspaperman more or less by accident. I have a PhD in philosophy from the University of Toronto, and I was a professor of philosophy from 2001 to 2004 at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. From 2005-2011 I was a public affairs columnist for Maclean's magazine, and was until recently a features editor at Canadian Business magazine.
In addition to the Authenticity Hoax, I wrote a lengthy introduction to the 40th anniversary edition of Lament for a Nation, by George Grant. I also coauthored the international bestseller The Rebel Sell (called Nation of Rebels in the United States) with Joseph Heath.
I spend most of my time on twitter @jandrewpotter.
