About Ana Maria Mora Marquez

I am a philosopher specializing in Aristotle and Medieval Aristotelianism, with competence in ancient philosophy and contemporary epistemology.

My initial training is in Philosophy and Mathematics at the Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia), where I specialized in Logic and Analytic Philosophy of Language.

I hold a PhD in Philosophy (2009) from the University Paris 1, Panthéon-Sorbonne.

I am a Wallenberg Academy Fellow 2015 (prolonged 2021), and and international associate member of the laboratory SPHERE at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), France.

I am currently the leader of a research project on socio-epistemic approches to Aristotelian science, funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation; see HERE and HERE.

My research 2106-2022 was concerned with the non formal-aspects of Aristotelian logic that are central to Aristotle's analysis of dialectical argumentation in the Topics and its medieval reception. This research was also funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation; see HERE.

My research 2013 to 2016 dealt with accounts of abstraction, concept-formation and intentionality in the medieval reception of Aristotle's De anima. I did this research as a member of the research programme Representation and Reality (2013-2019, Riksbanken Jubileumsfond).

My research from 2004 to 2013 dealt with the medieval notion of signification and its ancient sources. The results of this research are published in the monograph The 13th-Century Notion of Signification (Brill, 2015).

My theoretical framework is to a great extent contemporary epistemology (of science), philosophy of language, and metaphysics, at least as long as the application to the ancient and medieval texts is not anachronistic. Hence, I also strive to treat the ancient and medieval philosophical texts with the greatest historical and philological sensitivity.

As a Docent in Theoretical Philosophy I can supervise students working in contemporary epistemology, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, and metaphysics, as well as students interested in the history of philosophy, largely taken (not only Aristotle and the Aristotelian tradition, but also, e.g., Descartes, Spinoza, British empiricism, Kant, and Brentano).
