Teaching

Teaching is a central part of my intellectual life. This term, as often, I am teaching a lot of Aristotle.

Besides ancient philosophy and metaphysics, I have taught logic, philosophy of language and logic, philosophy of mind, epistemology, Kant, history of ethics, political philosophy, and freedoms.

In summer, I teach Philosophical Dialogues and Citizenship (basically, political philosophy) in Trento's state prison, in Italy. 

When possible, I integrate standard teaching methods with less standard ones, including puppet shows (in this year’s introduction to ancient philosophy), and film-making (as an assignment for a Barnard seminar on freedoms).

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