Research

Keywords: Machiavelli Spinoza Vico Equality Renato Serra

My research focuses mainly on some authors of modern philosophy. Between Machiavelli, Spinoza and Vico (studied in the critical revision of many, consolidated interpreting traditions), the unitary sense of my scientific work revolves around one of the most significant “heterodox” processes of the modern age: conjugations of morals and politics, reason and body (order and conflict, multitude and State, theology and science), “eccentric” as compared to the prevailing solutions of jusnaturalistic contractualism, or of idealistic-dialectic historicism. Among my research interests, are also the idea of equality, in relation with moral philosophy, with theoretical and scientific foundation, with political challenges.
