Biography

Research Interests

My main research interest is Renaissance and Early-Modern philosophy, broadly construed in both historical and systematic fashions and focused on the reception of classical and scholastic theories in early-modern discourse on the one hand, and on the many philosophical innovations which took place in the period between the 14th and the 17th centuries in the fields of metaphysics and epistemology, moral psychology and philosophical anthropology, science and politics on the other hand.
