Other Information

While studying for his graduate degrees Harry taught part-time at Cambridge and Harvard Universities. He specialised in ethics (including human rights), but also taught formal logic, set theory and probability, political philosophy, and history of philosophy. Unusually for Cambridge University, he was asked to teach in the year immediately following his undergraduate philosophy degree. He broadened to political and legal theory at Harvard University, leading a series of seminars as a Teaching Fellow on a course entitled “Equality and Democracy”. 


Harry has developed and taught seminars at City University called “Logic for Lawyers”, which use techniques from formal logic to enable clearer, more effective advocacy.


Harry has also founded a charitable group that specialises in teaching philosophy to people who have suffered social isolation or mental distress.
