Research interests

My work is especially concerned with 1) the question how ancient thinkers choose to communicate their insights in specific literary forms and 2) 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.
