Current Research

Philosophical Bases of Ancient and Modern Republicanism
This research seeks to clarify the question of the relations between Philosophy and Politics inAncient Greece that saw the birth of Political Philosophy. Political Philosophy reflected mainly on two themes: the Politeia (which is the origin of the concept of Republic) and Virtue. How did these concepts come about, how have they transformed throughout history, under the impact of Christianity, Machiavelli, and modern science? How are they thought of in the context of contemporary reflection (positivism, historicism, postmodernism…)?
