Kyle Bromhall earned his PhD in philosophy from the University of Guelph, his MA in philosophy from McMaster University, and his BA in philosophy and history from Western University.

Prior to joining Sheridan, Dr. Bromhall taught extensively at the University of Guelph. He has taught a wide variety of courses, including courses in social-political philosophy, informal logic, and the philosophy of science. He is passionate about providing an accessible, welcoming, inclusive environment where every student is equipped to perform at their highest level. His approach to content delivery emphasizes active engagement with course concepts and plays close attention to how philosophy can be applied to real life.

Dr. Bromhall’s research specializations are in metaphysics, epistemology, and the history and philosophy of psychology. Drawing from the work of William James, Dr. Bromhall argues that while most accounts of rationality hold that thinking is more important than feeling, we should instead recognize that thinking and feeling evolved as complementary systems of information processing. As such, our emotions are a key part of rationality, rather than an impediment to it. Dr. Bromhall has presented his work at conferences across North America, and has won several prestigious prizes and scholarships. He also acts as the Managing Editor of the academic journal William James Studies.
