I graduated from the University of Naples Federico II in 2012 with a thesis on Ernst Mach’s philosophy of science. I started my PhD at the University of Aberdeen in 2014 (Normativity Project Award Scheme) under Dr. Beth Lord’s supervision. I’m currently working on Spinoza’s theory of parallelism and monism and their relation: my research focuses on the compatibility of different interpretations of parallelism and their coherence with Spinoza’s concept of the uniqueness of substance, and it is carried out in a theoretical and historico-philosophical perspective. In addition I investigate Spinoza’s theory of causality and knowledge, given that it proves to be essential for the grounding of the systematic relation between monism and parallelism. I’m also interested in other conceptions of monism (e.g. Haeckel, Mach) and parallelism (e.g. Fechner, Wundt, Mach). Besides early modern philosophy, my areas of interest include continental philosophy, epistemology, philosophy of science and German philosophy of the 19th century.
