After developing various analyses on German thought between the nineteenth and twentieth century (Dilthey, Cassirer, philosophical anthropology, phenomenology), he investigated the traditions of Anglo-Saxon thought (from pragmatism to analytic philosophy) and critical theory (Adorno).
His studies deal with the relationship between perception praxis, form processes and expression practices according to an anthropological conception of the aesthetic. Currently his research focuses in particular on phenomena of widespread aestheticization and the determination of the aesthetic as a relational field according to the extended mind model.
He is author of several publications and editor of the Italian translation of a number of classics of contemporary aesthetic thought (go to: main publications).
