Giuseppe Feola ( giuseppe.feola1@gmail.com ) was born in Salerno (Italy) in 1976.

He got his first and master’s degree at University of Pisa and Scuola Normale Superiore, with a thesis about Aristotle’s concept of sensory-image (“Definizione e ruolo della phantasìa nelle opere psicologiche di Aristotele”)

In the subsequent years he was a PhD student at Scuola Normale, and developed his researches toward a synthesis of his previous researches in the field of ancient philosophy and his new interests in philosophy of mind.

His PhD thesis at Scuola Normale Superiore (“àisthesis, memoria, sensus communis: il mondo percettivo del vivente secondo Aristotele”, discussed in Spring 2008)  followed two paths: on the one hand, it tried to reconstruct Aristotle’s theory about intentionality; on the other hand, it tried to show how (and why) Aristotle’s theory is completely different from Platonic and Cartesian paradigms, while being very close to paradigms developed by recent biologists of cognition.

He wrote papers and articles, both in Italian and in English, about the history of philosophy and of science (mainly, but not only, about Aristotle). Other fields of interests have been the theory of poetical text, theory of narrative, and anthropology.
