Title
Supervisors Proff. Marcello Mustè, Francesco Fronterotta,
Research Interest After the Master’s degree obtained with a thesis on «L’ultimo Gentile. Sul sentimento e la morte», the following PhD project focuses on the Italian Philosophy of the XX century which I intend to highlight through a theoretical and historiographical research. Specifically, the research consists in retracing the history of the «Giornale critico della filosofia italiana», from 1920 to 1946, years in which Giovanni Gentile was the journal’s director. With this project I want to: promote journals as ‘spaces for philosophical culture’, promote the study of archival sources and unpublished documents, rebuilding the cultural, political and historical outline of Italy in that period. Finally, I want to dedicate attention to people and currents that have made the history of Italian Philosophy. Research interests: Theoretical Philosophy, History of philosophy, Italian Philosophy of the 20th and 21st centuries, Ontology and Metaphysics, Italian idealism

Title Times of the Self. Subjective temporality and acceleration.
Supervisors Prof. Virginio Marzocchi, Prof. Stefano Petrucciani,
Research Interest After my first thesis on Paul Virilio's dromologie, my main interest has become the issue of “Technique” in Western philosophy (in particular from the twentieth century until contemporaneity). These studies have led me towards Günther Anders’s philosophy (which was the subject of my second thesis's discussion) and, more generally, towards debates concerning Entfremdung and Verdinglichung. The current topic of my Ph.D. research project is Hartmut Rosa's social acceleration theory and a reconstruction of the concept of “lived temporality” (in this sense, I assume time as a dimension that could be better “experienced” in various way than something instrumentally measured).

Research Interest In the next three years I will develop a theme that I just sketched out in my graduation thesis, which concerned the two different interpretations of Pascal’s Pensées given by Voltaire and David Renaud Boullier (1699-1759), a protestant minister of Utrecht. My courrent research wants to analyze, for the first time in an exhaustive way, the writings composed in the XVIII century against Voltaire’s Anti-Pascal, that can be considered a project aiming at destroy the pessimistic vision of life of Pascal. In doing so, I will focus on Boullier's works, in particular on his Défense de Pascal, which reveal a wise and unjustly forgotten author.

Supervisors Prof. Stefano Petrucciani, Prof. Virginio Marzocchi,
Research Interest The research focuses on theoretical and political themes of European democracy in consideration of the rising gap between a globalized society, more and more interdependent, and a world of states by now highly fragmented. This topic stems strongly from the increasing perception of a democratic deficit within EU institutions. Among the various theories under consideration, the research is intended to focus mainly on the proposals from a deliberative conception of democracy.

Supervisors Proff. Stefano Petrucciani, Virginio Marzocchi,
Research Interest The research project originates from the philosophical reflection of Karl-Otto Apel. The purpose is to deepen the fundamental subjects of Apel’s thought, particularly the concepts of ultimate foundation, truth and reality that are at the bottom of Transcendental Semiotics that he developed. The post-metaphysical foundation of reason endorsed by Apel concerns both the theoretical and practical sphere: the consensual theory of truth refers to the regulative idea of an ideal communication community in which is in force the equality of rights of all the speakers. So theory of truth and discourse ethics are closely related: to examine the relationship between the truth claim of speech acts, that refers to the objective world, and the rightness claim, that refers to the intersubjective world, is one of the primary aims of the research. Interest areas: philosophy of language, political philosophy, moral philosophy

Research Interest My project is about novel concepts of chance in biology. At the molecular and cellular levels, the focus is on the functional role of stochastic elements - read as epigenetic factors - in explaining complex biological systems. This part of the analysis will draw on the work of Conrad H. Waddington, in particular referencing his concept of developmental noise. At the macro-evolutionary level, enquiry is directed towards analyzing how the concept of chance is modeled in explanations of evolutionary trends (e.g. extinction). Attention will focus on discussion surrounding the legitimacy of the extrapolation thesis, with particular regard to the concepts of stochasticity and contingency. The paleobiological revolution of the 1970s and 1980s and the work of Stephen J. Gould will be a touchstone for this part of the project. The final aim of analysis at these two levels is to argue that chance could be seen as a key element in the structure of biological explanation Fields of interest: philosophy of biology, history of biology, epistemology, philosophy of science, molecular and cellular biology, philosophy of epigenetics, paleobiology

Research Interest My research interests concern Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophy. After completing my master's degree with a thesis on "will to power ", I now wish to concentrate on the concept of genesis of the State and law, in both the middle phase and late phase of Nietzsche's thought, according to two different perspectives. That is, the theoretical aspect of his philosophy (revolving around the Wille zur Macht theory) and the historical background in which it was developed. In this manner I will strive to analyze the juridical and political aspects that define his philosophy, such as State and law theory but also, amongst others, power, decadence, justice, penalty, guilt, culture and civilization.

Research Interest The goal of my research is to analyze the question of art and of its theoretical grounds as proposed in Emilio Garroni's philosophical reflection. In particular I will focus my attention on that writings in which Garroni, moving from an original interpretation of Kant's critical philosophy, comes to elaborate the idea of Aesthetics as “a non-special philosophy of the sense of experience”. Having outlined the structure of Garroni's reflection, the research will focus on the pivotal topics of his thought, such as the circular relation between aesthetics and philosophy, the problem of the so called “fall of the exemplarity of art”, and the role of imagination in the perception and experience of art. The research, moreover, will highlight the connection of these arguments with the contemporary philosophical debate. Areas of interest: Aesthetics, Philosophy of art, Art criticism, Contemporary art

Supervisors proff. Marcello Mustè, Elettra Stimilli,
Research Interest My main areas of interests are Italian philosophy and the history of marxisms. In particular, my research aims to reconcstruct the history of the Italian Marxist tradition between 1956 and 1968, analyzing how the various debates and different currents of tought, that arise in that period, question the concept of Marxist culture and philosophical tradition, linked to historicism and gramscism, and how they initiate a more general reflection on the "geophilosophical" problem of the relationship between culture and national State, also activating the comparison of Italian Marxism with other philosophical movements, such as existentialism, phenomenology, "negative thought" and structuralism. At the same time, my project aims to investigate the different transformations that took place in those years and that affect the analysis of the relationship between Marxism and Hegelian dialectics, the link between philosophy, science and politics and the role of intellectuals in the parties. Areas of interests: Italian philosophy, marxisms, theoretical philosphy, political philosophy, history of philosophy, contemporary history.

Research Interest The main object of the research will be the analysis of the Epicurean position towards politics as a doctrine and towards effective political action. Furthermore, I will examine the concept of justice in Epicureanism. However, the most important part of the research will be dedicated to the development of Epicurean political philosophy following Epicurus' death: later Epicurean philosophers will be studied to determine their real and genuine contribution to political thought. What was the relationship between their considerations and the Master's original doctrine? To answer this question, I will focus on the most emblematic personalities of Greek Epicureanism, in order to show the controversial relationship that Epicureans maintained with their contemporary politicians.

Title Prophets and prophetism by Thomas Hobbes
Supervisors prof.ssa Annalisa Schino, prof.ssa Annalisa Schino. prof. Stefano Bancalari
Research Interest The research focus is the examination of prophetism and the identity of the role of the prophet, having as a background an investigation of Thomas Hobbes exegete and interpreter of the Old and New Testaments. Through a critical and comparative approach of the Hobbesian sources, I will try to examine the narrative choices of Hobbes in assessing the importance of prophetic revelation and its political implications. The analysis will also focus on the problem of the identity of the true and the false prophet evaluating the political response in a controversial historical context, full of superstitions and fears, like the English seventeenth century. With a view to widening the development of the research, it is not possible to exclude the possibility of considering whether, even today, the problem of prophecy and false revelations may have declinations in philosophical and political interpretation in the contemporary historical context.

Supervisors Proff. Francesco Fronterotta, Diana Quarantotto, Riccardo Chiaradonna,
Research Interest My research interests lie chiefly in the history of metaphysics and of theory of knowledge in Greek Neoplatonism, with special consideration to the relationship between doctrinal elements of Platonic and Aristotelian origin. My current research is concerned, in particular, with the reception of the Aristotelian noetics in Plotinus’ philosophy. It sets out to analyse the different ways in which the Aristotelian doctrine of intellect is revised, adapted and appropriated at the different levels of the Plotinian metaphysical hierarchy, while keeping in mind as well the history of this doctrine through the earliest centuries of the imperial age, so far as this history is known to us. The main text I put to contribution in this inquiry is Plotinus’ treatise Enneads V 3, transmitted with the title On the hypostases endowed with knowledge and on what lies beyond them, of which I hope I will be able to provide a new Italian translation with full commentary.

Research Interest My research project aims to provide a comprehensive perspective about origins, explanation and possible developments of the concept of symbol within the wide framework of contemporary hermeneutics thinking; the research especially focuses on examination of the conception of symbol formulated by the thought of Luigi Pareyson and Paul Ricoeur. Firstly, in this respect, it is fundamental the comparison with the perspective opened by Ernst Cassirer, through the concept of symbolic form and the anthropologic definition of animal symbolicum; secondly, it is decisive the reconsideration of culture carried out by psychoanalysis, particularly within its branch developed by Carl Gustav Jung. Finally, the relationship between symbol and truth, as well as between symbol and interpretation, finds its representative expression in myth; therefore, my research project deals with comprehension of myth and symbol belonging to German Romanticism, especially within the thought of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schelling, essential references for the theories of symbol and for the contemporary hermeneutics reflection.

Research Interest My research lies within that philosophical pluralistic naturalized perspective according to which a partnership and some dialogue between biological, cognitive and psychological sciences on one side and human, historical and social sciences on the other side are necessary to shape an accurate empiric description of the human beings. In my thesys I will explore the interactions between the individuals and the «ecological niches» they live in so to explain human subjectivity construction taking the latest declinations of the theory of evolution as the epistemic framework. The aim is to offer a representation of the subjectivity as the product of recorsive interaction of material structures – a body with physical and neurobiological characteristics, an enviroment, other bodies – and immaterial – culture, society, linguistic and experiential relations with other human beings and the enviroment – as they cannot be completely differentiated.

Title The audience reception of the critical edition of Gramsci’s “Notebooks” in the circles of Italian intellectuals in 1975-1989
Supervisors proff. Marcello Mustè, Stefano Petrucciani,
Research Interest My research interests cover a wide range of aspects of philosophy of politics viewed in terms of the theory of the human being’s political activity as it has been conceptualized through ages by philosophers of the Antiquity, those of medieval scholastics, passing through the renewal of the classical thought during the Renaissance period, as well as in the XVIIth century, in the Enlightenment epoch, during the Romanticism (XIXth century) and in the Twentieth century until our times. In this context I am particularly attentive to the modern Italian philosophers of the XIXth and the XXth centuries, such as Antonio Labriola, Rodolfo Mondolfo, Benedetto Croce and, of course, Antonio Gramsci, who I consider as one of the most important Italian philosophers of the Twentieth century, in the universal sense, the one that exerts an undeniable impact within the precincts of interpretation and actualization of Marxism, as well in its purely philosophical connotation as in terms of the theorization of the political practices (filosofia della prassi – philosophy of practice), in Italy and all around the world. I have chosen to write my Phd thesis on the subject of the reception of his philosophy in the circles of Italian intellectuals of the Seventies and the Eighties of the last century, howbeit aware of the essential vitality of the global impact of his theoretical thought and of its incredible political outcome and potential democratic capacity, the one that has been interpreted, actualized and intellectually prolific in the countries called “subaltern”, in the postcolonial sense. Otherwise, I am comprehensively interested in the philosophy of language, in its post-structuralist upshots in Umberto Eco’s thought, in the platonic “logocentrism” by Jacques Derrida, in Michel Foucault’s discourse theory and Michail Bachtin’s dialogical philosophy. In the same philosophical realm Emmanuel Lévinas’s altruism, Hannah Arendt’s assets on totalitarianism are naturally positioned, as well as the elaboration of the critical theory by the philosophers such as Theodore W. Adorno, Jürgen Habermas and Max Horkheimer of the Frankfurt School, where the Marx’s social theory is extended towards the scientifically pluralistic interpretation.

Research Interest My research's goal is reaching an adequate philosophical understanding of the limit's notion. Specially, I try to question the traditional reduction of the concept of limit to the figure of border that distinguishes and connects the “inside” from the “outside” through the production of a vacuum of determinations or non-place. Following the lessons of Walter Benjamin, Gilles Deleuze and Giorgio Agamben, I want to return the concept of limit to its condition of threshold, zone of passage or zone of indiscernibility: a nomadically inhabited space, a place of conceptual migration and weaving of affects, lines, singularities, flows and rhizomes.

Research Interest My research aims to determine the meaning of "object" in the Kantian philosophy, as a point of intersection between metaphysical, logical and epistemological considerations of the nature of individuals and our knowledge of them. This research will use the analysis of the spatial theory - in which the "object" is thought - and the Kantian discussion with Leibniz to grasp with more distinction the problem of the nature and the conditions of the individual. These questions have played a decisive role in the criticism of Kant to Leibniz's intellectual system "of the totality of connections" and they underpin the revision in trascendental terms of the relationship between the phenomenal object and the noumenic one. Areas of interest: the philosophy of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the history of logic, epistemology and theories about the nature of space."

Research Interest The aim of my research project is to identify and analyze those concepts and political practices which may employ the critical dynamis of skeptical philosophy, both in its ancient version, namely in Sextus Empiricus’s Neophirronism, and in its contemporary version, considering Michael Oakeshott as an original, even though controversial scholar of this agoge. I will try to prove that a comparison between the two thinkers is both philosophically and historically founded. At the same time, I will investigate the compatibility of skeptical theoretical reflection with a non-dogmatic and non-foundationalistic political approach, which today can represent not only a caveat against all forms of fundamentalism, but also a practical instrument in guiding choices and political practice within (and between) the plural and complex communities in which we live. Areas of interest: Skepticism, Sextus Empiricus, Michael Oakeshott, Political Philosophy, Ethics.

Supervisors Proff. Cesare Cozzo, Emiliano Ippoliti,
Research Interest My research interests concern the study of antirealistic conceptions of meaning, emphasizing those theories of meaning which adopt the concept of justification and verification as central notion. In particular, my project is devoted to the enquiry on the possibility to extend these theories to the analysis of natural language, paying specific attention to the problem of not conclusive justifications. If in the mathematical domain – where the intuitionistic tradition makes available fruitful insights to build up a not truth-conditional theory of meaning – a mathematical proof for asserting a sentece amounts to its conclusive justification, in natural language there are empirical sentences for which no conclusive justifications are availble; sentences of these kind are, for example, universal sentence about a physical phenomena. Research areas: philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, logic, epistemology

Title Genealogy of the concept of "Inter-est" in and beyond Sieyès.
Supervisors prof.ssa Silvia Berti, prof.ssa Silvia Berti, prof.ssa Elettra Stimilli
Research Interest Delving into the researches conducted in particular at the University of Padua, EHESS and ENS Paris, I am working on a genealogy of the concept of "Inter-est" as a central device in the modern and contemporary political thought. In this context, the published and unpublished work of E. J. Sieyès represents the corpus of reference to investigate the strategical composition of homo oeconomicus and persona iuris in the transactional figure of the "subject of interest". From a methodological perspective, the necessary theoretical instruments are elaborated from a tightened confrontation with Begriffsgeschichte (Brunner, Koselleck, Duso), contemporary French philosophy (Foucault, Deleuze e Guattari) and Neo-Operaismo(Negri, Virno). Also, a partnership with the Centre d’Études Sieyesiennes(Paris1-Nice) is underway. Interest areas: Political philosophy. Theoretical philosophy. Philosophy of law.

Title Dag Prawitz’s Theory of Grounds
Supervisors prof. Cesare Cozzo, prof.ssa Gabriella Crocco
Research Interest Philosophy of Logic, Mathematical Logic. My PhD thesis concerns the so-called theory of grounds, proposed by the swedish mathematician, logician and philosopher Dag Prawitz. The theory of grounds is a philosophical reflection upon, and a formal semantics for, the notion of valid inference. Inferences can be conceived of as those deductive steps of passage from premises to conclusion that one usually performs in proofs or, more generally, in reasonings. The theory of grounds aims to answer a question that philosophy of logic and mathematical logic have posed since their very birth: why and how some of such steps exert an epistemic compulsion, thereby compelling us to accept their conclusions as correct if we accept their premises? Prawitz's explanation develops within a mathematical language based on the notions of grounds – intuitively, what one is in possession of when in a state of justification – and of operation on grounds – interpreting the effective functions involved in the Brouwer-Heyting-Kolmogorov intuitionistic construction semantics. The pivotal idea is that inferences are performed by applying an operation on the grounds that one considers oneself to have for the premises, with the intention to get a ground for the conclusion – an inference being valid when the intention is fulfilled. In this context, I focus on an issue of decidability around the relation “x is a ground for y”, on the possible ways to understand the expression “decidable”, and on the potentially problematic impact that the issue has on the general theoretical framework.

Research Interest Given as a starting point George Canguilhem’s philosophy, the aim of this research is to propose a critical analysis about the category of normality, investigating the normativity’s biological status, typical of the human being, under the spotlight of the interaction between organism, environment and technics. This topic will be mainly addressed under the perspective of medicine, which has such a big part, as a technique, in acting on the living organism’s naturality, through moving and reconfiguring it, or in some particular cases by dissolving the boundaries between biological organisms and technical items. According to us, it is especially for this reason that a new and wider definition of normativity is more than ever required. Areas of interest: Epistemology, Philosophy of Biology, Medical Anthropology, Bioethics, Biopolitics.

Title The role of the Verstand in Hegel’s Philosophy
Supervisors Prof. Marcello Mustè, Prof. Pierluigi Valenza, Prof. Klaus Vieweg,
Research Interest My current research focuses on reconstructing both the origin and function of Hegel’s Verstand, seen as a mechanism of the understanding of difference. Besides retracing the historical-genetical development of this concept, which is key to Hegel’s way of challenging the philosophical systems of his time, my research project also aims at inquiring the link between intellect and reason, starting from the theoretical standpoints set by the contemporary debate, notably the latest results in the Hegel Forschung and the anglo-american paths of interpretation. The main areas of interest are: Theoretical Philosophy; Classical German Philosophy; History of Modern Philosophy; Italian Philosophy.

Research Interest Areas of interest: Migration, Moral Philosophy, Political Philosophy, Phenomenology and Ecology. My research interests are to study the relationship between ethics and migration, with special reference to the three main areas: the admission of immigrants, the treatment of immigrants and cohabitation of cultural pluralism in society. This research study focuses on the first aspect, in relation to the two philosophical currents between them conflicting: communitarism and liberalism. The goal of the research is: to make a critical analysis at ethical level regarding the migration today, to propose an integrated approach in order to consider simultaneously the two philosophical currents. In the end, the research intends also to indicate and to propose a path, which gives the social life a possibility to intersect with the criteria of justice and respect for common values of peace and tolerance.

Supervisors prof. Emidio Spinelli, prof. Emidio Spinelli, prof. Nunzio Allocca
Research Interest The aim of my research project is to rebuild the epistemology in Lucretius’ De rerum natura. My intent is to develop a pioneering work that includes for the first time all the various aspects of the theory of epicurean knowledge: canonic, multiple explanations, semiotic and analogical inference, demonstration and theory of language. Regarding these issues, particularly, the purpose of the study is to establish the contours of the doctrinal relationship between Lucretius and Epicurus and examine the originality of the Latin poet and his personal contribution to the doctrine held by the Kepos. In a more general perspective, my research aims focus on the different philosophical realities characterizing the Hellenistic period, especially the Roman philosophy. Regarding this stage of Ancient philosophy, I take into account the theories of knowledge endorsed by the different schools of thought and the host of problems related to them. I am also interested in matters of logic and science philosophy.

Supervisors proff. Pierluigi Valenza, Marcello Mustè,
Research Interest My research is about the connection between Knowing and Being in K.L. Reinhold’s – and C. G. Bardili’s – rational (or logical) realism and in Fichte’s Wissenschaftslehre following the atheism dispute (Atheismusstreit) of 1799. After an historical reconstruction of the complex relations of the three authors, the focus of the research will be the link between the key-concepts of the rational realism and the transcendental structure of the image-knowledge that Fichte develops particularly in WL 1804-II and WL 1805. Another confrontation element is the relation between philosophy and life related to the faith.

Supervisors Prof. Piergiorgio Donatelli, Prof.ssa Annalisa Schino,
Research Interest Subjects of interest: Moral Philosophy, Ethics, Bioethics. Starting from a background of general interests in 17th century British history and philosophy, and in its confluences in contemporary moral philosophy, my present research aims to explore, at the first, the contentious relationship between Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) and religion. I shall try to point out what a reinterpretation of Hobbes’s philosophy and its religious account of conscience can suggests about issues spreading in our time, regarding religion and public life. Analyzing the transition of such a moral and political contents in contemporary ethics, the work’s goal shall consist in defining “hobbesian” philosophical topics capable to be accepted in a current democratic context. These topics may be able to settle issues of conscience about themes such as life, end-of-life and sexuality.

Title Tragedy of culture and redemption in Unamuno and Ortega y Gasset
Supervisors prof.ssa Irene Kajon, prof.ssa Irene Kajon, prof. Stefano Bancalari
Research Interest The current research aims to deepen the thought of the Spanish philosophers Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936) and José Ortega y Gasset (1883-1955) through the themes of tragic and redemption, which are considered "urgent" in European philosophy of the first half of the twentieth century. In particular, the purpose is to reconstruct the concepts of tragic and redemption in their configuration as tragedy of culture – using a Simmelian expression – and redemption of the world, understood not only in the religious sense, but also and above all from a socio-ethical and historical perspective. The effort, therefore, will be to move through the reflection of the two authors – which focuses on the problem of life – to give it a place in the European intellectual landscape (particularly in relation to the German area) and reconstruct its original philosophical contribution.

Research Interest Starting from a philosophical and historical scientific analysis of the work of Charles Darwin, my research focuses on the notebooks (in particular the C and the D) of the author of the Origin of Species, in an attempt to compare them with ideas and the theories presented in the notebooks of two other famous protagonists of the evolutionary debate of that time, the naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace and the geologist Sir Charles Lyell. Through a careful study of these notebooks it will be possible to retrace and offer a complete picture of the journey taken by the minds of these three authors, developing a study able to offer a new perspective both on the parallel development of their reasoning paths, detailing their steps, contents, motives, differences and influences (philosophical, political and scientific), both on the composition and genesis of their great evolutionary works (whose first buds we find precisely in their notebooks), thus clarifying one of the most significant moments in the history of evolutionism.
