Personal profile

Personal information

Pietro Gori (Ph.D. in Modern and Contemporary Philosophy, 2008) works as researcher at the NOVA University Lisbon (Institute of Philosophy), where he also acts as invited lecturer for the chairs of Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Knowledge. He is a member of the association “HyperNietzsche”, the “Red Iberoamericana de Estudios Nietzscheanos”, the “Seminario Permanente Nietzscheano”, and collaborator of the “Internationale Nietzscheforschungsgruppe Stuttgart”. Between 2017 and 2022 he directed the "Lisbon Nietzsche Group." His academic expertise focuses especially on Modern and Contemporary Philosophy; History and Philosophy of Science; Epistemology; and Philosophical Anthropology. Within this context, Gori deals more in particular with representatives of an anti-fundationalist turn in philosophy (e.g. Friedrich Nietzsche, Ernst Mach and William James), as well as with the post-empiricist approach of the British philosopher of science Mary B. Hesse. On these topics, Gori published monographic essays, edited collective volumes, and published a relevant number of book chapters as well as articles in peer-reviewed international journals and series.
