Teaching

Teaching is a very central part of my intellectual life. Places in which I taught: Columbia, NYU, Oxford, Trento's prison, and UCL.

Besides various topics in ancient philosophy, my previous courses have been about: metaphysics, logic, philosophy of language, philosophy of logic, philosophy of mind, epistemology, Kant, history of ethics, introduction to philosophy, and freedoms. At Trento’s prison, moreover, I regularly teach Philosophical Dialogues and Citizenship. Next term 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 I am planning 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).
