Michael Stenskjær Christensen

PhD student within Representation and Reality.

I am a Classicist from University of Copenhagen, but I also hold a B.A. in History of Ideas from Aarhus University, Denmark.

My current project concerns the intellect's knowledge of and reflection on itself and its own activity in the Latin commentaries on De anima from the 13th and 14th centuries. Some research has been done on the intellect's self-knowledge within the last 10-15 years, especially for the 13th century, with a certain emphasis on theological material such as commentaries on Petrus Lombardus's Sentences or Quaestiones disputatae, while only some work has been done on this question with a specific focus on De anima commentaries. Besides that, there is a strong tendency to focus the research on texts that have already been published, although they only cover about a fifth of all our transmitted commentaries. I will therefore focus my attention on the yet unpublished De anima commentaries.

My main interests focus on Aristotle and the (mainly Western) Aristotelian tradition, and ancient and medieval philosophy in general. I wrote my master's thesis on divinity in Aristotle, but I have also written a monograph on the ethics of Plato and the cardinal virtues in the Greek philosophy and literature, which is now in print.
