Research Interests

My interests, and the lines of research that I have been developing, have been marked since my doctoral thesis (which dealt with the myth and reason dichotomy) by a cross between literary and philosophical themes that, I believe, have somehow become unified over time. On the one hand, I have dealt with the translation of poets of Hellenistic antiquity (Callimachus) and more recently of relatively unknown authors such as the Byzantine grammarian Museo (5th century). On the other hand, my philosophical interests have focused on certain epistemological problems within the contemporary hermeneutical and phenomenological tradition (the first Heidegger, Husserl and Merleau-Ponty), interests that obstinately turn to the question of meaning (cultural formations) and its relationship with nature. The language of literature, philosophy, arts and sciences (and of all those spiritual formations that have a claim to universality) place us in front of the difficult question of the origin of truth, as well as of its historical and intersubjetive circumscription. How are we to understand the origin of these spiritual formations and their truth value? In this way, the mythical cosmogonies, their particular way of asking about the origin (aitia in Greek), or the axiomatic formulations of the natural sciences are all paths that interrogate by a certain meaning (directionality) that precedes them and which corresponds them to discover. So, maybe, I would like to believe that Callimachus and Merleau-Ponty can meet after all. Among my courses I usually teach Aesthetics for students of literature and Contemporary Philosophy for students of philosophy.
