About Moa de Lucia Dahlbeck

About my research.

I investigate legal theory and international law primarily by way of turning to the history of philosophy and, more specifically, the works of Benedict Spinoza and the reception of these works throughout the history of philosophy. I am interested in juxtaposing contemporary and contextually specific problems of law with philosophy, in order to be able to find the basic and conceptual conditions at work within those discourses constructing both the problems at hands as well as their suggested solutions.

Research networks

I am a member of the Grupo de Investigacíon sobre Spinoza y el Spinozismo (the Spinoza Investigation Group) of the University of Buenos Aires. and of the research network at the department of law: Genesis of Artificial Intelligence, Law, and Life:


- International Law

 - Early Modern Philosophy

 - Political and Legal Philosophy 

Ongoing Research

The investigation that I am currently conducting as a postdoctoral fellow constitutes a part of a research project called Digitalized Warfare: Responsibility, Intentionality and the Rule of Law.

Areas of Teaching

My most recent publication is a full length monograph in the Routledge series Law, Justice and Ecology about the call for a new, non-dualistic metaphysics within international environmental law. Spinoza, Ecology and International Law: Radical Naturalism in the Face of the Anthropocene (2018).
