About Katerina Ierodiakonou

I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Logic and Scientific Method at the London School of Economics; the topic of my thesis was the Stoic logical method of analysis. I am currently Professor of Ancient Philosophy at the Department of Philosophy and History of Science of the University of Athens and Associate Professor of Ancient Philosophy at the Philosophy Department of the University of Geneva. I have previously taught as Assistant Professor at the National Technical University of Athens, and as Lecturer and Fellow at Oxford Colleges (St. Hugh’s College, University College, Brasenose College), at York University, and at Cambridge University. I also taught summer courses at the Central European University in Budapest and at the Bosphorus University in Istanbul. During the autumn term of 2003 I was Member in the School of Historical Studies of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. As Visiting Professor I spent some time doing research at the Centre of Excellence ‘Topoi’ of the Humboldt University in Berlin, at the Centre for Advanced Studies of the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters in Oslo, at the Department of Philosophy & Classics of Gothenburg University, and at the Department of Classics of Stockholm University.

My research interests are in Ancient and Byzantine philosophy, in particular ancient epistemology and logic. I edited collections of articles and published numerous papers on Aristotelian and Stoic logic, Hellenistic theories of knowledge, ancient thought experiments, ancient medicine, and Byzantine logical commentaries. The book I am currently working on, Ancient Theories of Colour, is the first systematic study of this topic. My next projects are to edit, translate and comment on (i) Theophrastus’ De sensibus, and (ii) Michael Psellos’ paraphrasis of Aristotle’s De interpretatione and Analytica priora.

Within R&R I am responsible for the sub-project ‘Sense Perception in the Aristotelian Tradition’, which has the aim to investigate the further developments of Aristotle’s views on sense perception; that is to say, the developments in the Peripatetic tradition and in the writings of the Aristotelian commentators concerning issues such as the ontological status of the objects of sense perception, the differences between the senses, the kind of knowledge we acquire through sense perception, and the possibility of misperceiving.
