Assistant Professor of Philosophy
Diego Malquori holds a PhD in Philosophy from the Ramon Llull University (Spain) as well as a PhD in Astronomy from the University of Padova (Italy).
His philosophical interests have spanned from epistemology to aesthetics and the philosophy of art. In this direction, his doctoral dissertation on “Time and temporality in contemporary art” considers the perception and the expression of temporality as a key for interpreting the artistic experience of our time.
He has taught courses on the philosophy of science, the philosophy of art, ethics, and literature. Drawing on his scientific background, he has also worked on the evolution of galaxies and quasars, and he has taught courses on astrophysics and cosmology.
In addition to his scholarly writing, he has recently completed a novel, L’incomprensibile ambiguità dell’orizzonte (The Incomprehensible Ambiguity of the Horizon), published in Italy by Mimesis.
