Mr Mattia Sisti
I graduated in philosophy at Vita-Salute-San Raffaele University in Milan in 2014; during the last year of these studies, I spent several months in Germany between Munich and Berlin in order to learn German.
After completing an MA in ancient philosophy at Durham University in 2015, I moved to Beijing in order to do an internship with the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce for approximately 6 months.
My research interests include:
- ancient philosophy;
- Plato’s philosophical and political thought;
- ancient scepticism (in particular ancient Pyrrhonism);
The aim of my DPhil is to gain a more solid understanding of the sceptical movements of Antiquity (with particular reference to ancient Pyrrhonism) and to analyse their reception in Nietzsche’s thought.
La demonologia di Cleante e Crisippo, Rivista di Filosofia Neoscolastica (accepted for publication May 2017; expected publication 2018)
My undergraduate dissertation on Plato’s political thought and its reception during the Twentieth century was published as a book at the beginning of 2015: http://www.aracneeditrice.it/aracneweb/index.php/pubblicazione.html?item=9788854876798
I have also published several articles in Business Insider Italy and Strade Online:
