Research:

Since 2011 I am fully dedicated to the research project “Scholastica colonialis: Reception and Development of Baroque Scholasticism in Latin America in the Sixteenth to Eighteenth Centuries”, i.e., a project that launches a long-term, exhaustive investigation of the development of Baroque Scholastic philosophy in Latin America during the colonial period. It is an integrated project of international collaboration among several research groups in Brazil, Chile, Peru, Portugal, Spain, Germany, and other. The main purpose of the project is to write, under scientific basis, the history of philosophy (scholastic philosophy) in Latin America. For that purpose, the project aims at preparing inventories and catalogues of manuscripts and printed works that record colonial Scholastic thought, as well as careful analyses and editions of important authors and texts.
