Teaching

Teaching is a central part of my intellectual life. 

Besides various things in ancient philosophy, I have taught: metaphysics, logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, epistemology, Kant, history of ethics, and freedoms. In summers, I teach Philosophical Dialogues and Citizenship at Trento's prison. 

I love to integrate standard teaching methods with less standard ones, when possible. These include puppet shows (for Introduction to Ancient Philosophy), and film-making (an assignment for Barnard's First-Year Seminar on Freedoms).

I’m currently planning future courses on medieval metaphysics, and totalitarianisms.
