Recherche

AMPhi

AMPhi is a research group dedicated to ancient and medieval philosophy. It owes its emergence to the encounter of four specialists working in the history of philosophy at the University of Geneva: Paolo Crivelli and Katerina Ierodiakonou for classical, Hellenistic, and Byzantine philosophy; Laurent Cesalli and Olga Lizzini for medieval Latin, Arabic, and Jewish philosophy.

The aim of AMPhi consists in the study of core issues of theoretical philosophy within the framework of these traditions. The envisaged cooperation will combine historical (translatio studiorum), philological (critical editions and translations), and philosophical approaches (analyses of doctrines).

AMPhi est un groupe de recherche en philosophie ancienne et médiévale né de la configuration unique que présente l’étude de l’histoire de la philosophie à Genève—en effet, le département de philosophie réunit quatre spécialistes de philosophie antique et médiévale, chacun d’eux s’intéressant à des traditions différentes: Paolo Crivelli et Katerina Ierodiakonou pour la philosophie classique, hellénistique et byzantine ; Laurent Cesalli et Olga Lizzini pour la philosophie médiévale, latine, arabe et hébraïque.

L’objectif d’AMPhi est l’étude des questions centrales de philosophie théorique dans ces différentes traditions. Les travaux envisagés seront d’ordre à la fois historique (translatio studiorum), philologiques (éditions et traductions), et philosophiques (analyse des doctrines).
