Prof. Lucas Angioni
Lucas Angioni did his PhD (2000) in Philosophy at the University of Campinas, where he holds a tenured position (since 1998). He has been an Academic Visitor in Oxford many times (mostly during Hillary Term), first with David Charles (2007, 2009, 2010, 2012), then with Michail Peramatzis (Trinity Term 2015). He was also a Visiting Scholar in Stanford twice for the Winter Term (2014, 2015) with Alan Code.
Professor Angioni is the author of several books, book chapters and articles on Aristotle that have appeared in several journals (such as Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy, Apeiron, Ancient Philosophy, Analytica, Manuscrito, Archai, Studia Philosophica Estonica, Logical Analysis and History of Philosophy, Eirene and others).
One of his lifetime's projects is to translate a significant part of Aristotle's works into Portuguese (Physics I-II has been released in 2009; other translations are appearing piecemeal, as provisional versions in journals).
His current research is organized around Aristotle’s theory of scientific explanation, without excluding secondary focuses on other topics, especially in Aristotle’s metaphysics and ethics.
