Ancient Philosophy

I specialize in Plato, Stoicism and Neoplatonism. My work is centrally concerned on the one hand with the question how ancient thinkers choose to communicate their insights in specific literary forms and on the other hand the reception of (mainly Platonic) philosophical texts in the ancient world and since antiquity. Areas of special interest include the Platonic Alcibiades I, philosophical concepts of self-knowledge, the work of Olympiodorus of Alexandria, and narrative analysis of ancient philosophical texts.

Students are welcome to contact me for supervision on any subject in ancient philosophy and Greek and Latin philosophical prose.
