Dr. Saloni de Souza

Dr. Saloni de Souza works primarily on the pre-Socratics, Plato and Aristotle, especially their metaphysics.  She is currently working on Plato's and Aristotle's ideas about numerical identity, Zeno's paradox of place and the ethics around death and ageing in Plato. 

Dr. Saloni de Souza is also intrested in reception, ancient Chinese and Indian philosophy, philosophy of medicine (ancient and contemporary) and contemporary metaphysics.  Some of her work involves demonstrating that contemporary philosophers have a great deal to learn from ancient philosophers.

Prior to UCL, Saloni studied for her D.Phil at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Prof. Lindsay Judson, Prof. Ursula Coope and Mrs. Lesley Brown. She previously did an M.Philstud at King's College London under the supervision of Prof. Mary Margaret McCabe and her BA at the University of Cambridge.
