Teaching is a central part of my intellectual life. My experience comes from Columbia, NYU, Oxford, Trento's prison, and UCL.
- Current teaching: Modality and Causation (Oxford-UCL joint seminar, with Alex Kaiserman).
Besides various topics in ancient philosophy, I taught: metaphysics, logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, epistemology, Kant, history of ethics, introduction to philosophy, and freedoms. In prison I teach Philosophical Dialogues and Citizenship. Next year at UCL I'll teach Modality: Linguistics and Philosophy (with Angelika Kratzer) and Truth in Plato and Aristotle (with Michael Peramatzis and Luca Castagnoli). Other future courses include medieval metaphysics, feminism, and totalitarianisms.
When possible, I integrate standard teaching methods with less standard ones. These include puppet shows (for Introduction to Ancient Philosophy) and film-making (an assignment for Freedoms, a Barnard's first-year seminar).
