Interconnectedness in Early Greek Philosophy

The early Greek philosophers devoted considerable attention to living beings and life looking at them in relation to the cosmos in which they originated and at the environment, which sustained them. This talk will explore key aspects and notions of their fascinating approach to the living world letting emerge a mode of thought that saw continuities rather than discontinuities and connections rather than isolation.

Her new book titled Aristotle and the Animals. The Logos of Life Itself is forthcoming with Routledge (UK) in Fall 2021. Her research interests include ancient Greek philosophy and science, ancient Greek literature, Ovid, and classical myths. After teaching at Northwestern University (Evanston, USA) she currently teaches at the American College of Greece.
