Pensamento Moderno e Contemporâneo

I obtained my PhD in History of Modern Philosophy at the University of Lisbon, with a dissertation on “The work of mediation in the Leibnizian thought” (2003), within which I aimed to give, simultaneously, a new perspective on the Leibnizian way of intelligibility and on the complex framework of the modernity. In fact, the connection between philosophy, science, morality and religion is a source of controversies among the most relevant thinkers as Hobbes, Spinoza, Malebranche, Arnauld, Bayle. My subsequent research has been always concerned with this style of work, combining a singular way of intelligibility with a wider intellectual horizon.
I collaborated in several research projects at the Center of Philosophy of the University of Lisbon, and other research institutions. From 2007 to 2011, I was the PI of the project PTDC/FIL/64863/2006 “Philosophy, Medicine and Society” at the CFUL, financially supported by the FCT, and I am currently the PI of the project PTDC/FIL-FCI/116843/2010 “The concept of nature in the transition from the seventeenth to the eighteenth century” at the Center for the History of Culture, CHC (2012-2015), supported by FCT, and of the project “Medical art and scientific intelligibility in Felipe Montalto’s Archipathologia”, at the CHC (2013-2014), supported by Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian. I worked as member of the research team of the project HC/069/2009 “The scientific work of Teodoro de Almeida” (2009-2011), at the CHC, coordinated by Marta Mendonça, and I work currently as member of the research team of the projects: “Narrative and Medicine: (Con)texts and Practices across Disciplines”, coordinated by Isabel Fernandes from CEAUL, and “Animale Rationale Mortale”, coordinated by Paula Oliveira Silva, from IF-UP.
