FNS Research Fellow
After graduating in Philosophy at Padua University (Italy) in 1991, I spent one year at King’s College, London, working with Prof. Richard Sorabji. In 1992, I went back to Italy to complete my doctorate in Ancient Philosophy under the supervision of Profs Enrico Berti and the late Mario Mignucci. I took my viva in 1996 with a dissertation on the post-Aristotelian tradition of the Sophistical Refutations. From 1996 to 1998, I was a post-doc in Padua and I worked on the publication of my book on Galen’s treatise on Linguistic Fallacies. Then I moved to the University of Edinburgh (UK), where I was teaching Ancient Philosophy and Logic at the Department of Philosophy. From 2002 to 2011, I was a lecturer at the Queen’s College, University of Oxford (UK). My current affiliation is with the Department of Philosophy in Geneva University (CH). As “professeure collaboratrice”, I am completing my current research project, namely a translation and commentary of Aristotle’s Topics book VI to be published in the Aristotle Clarendon Series by Oxford University Press. My project is funded by the FNS.
My main research area is Ancient Philosophy, in particular epistemology, ontology and history of logic. I am also interested in the post-Aristotelian and neo-Platonic tradition (I published several papers on Plotinus), and in modern logic.
