About the Speaker:

Dr. Jonathan Buttaci is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at The Catholic University of America. He came to CUA in 2016 after completing his PhD at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Buttaci’s research focuses on accounts of mind and the soul in ancient Greek thought, in particular Aristotle’s theory of knowledge, learning, and scientific discovery. He is also interested more generally in the interplay between ancient Greek science, philosophy, and literature.
