Dissertation

My project is mainly concerned with topics in the Philosophy of Emotions. I am particularly interested in the epistemic function of emotions, especially in relation to political issues. I am also interested in the intersection between emotions, literature and psychology of reasoning. Specifically, I work on the capacity of emotions to establish a connection between narrated events, and on the function that detecting emotions performs in processing narrative analogies. Finally, I have an interest in the emotional dimension of different issues in contemporary applied ethics, such as torture and immigration.
