Research interests

I am an historian of political thought and ideas who has earned his D.Phil. and is currently employed at the Dept. of Social Sciences and Philosophy of the University of Jyväskylä. In the past I have been a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge, UK, and I have also earned a MA in Political Thought from the University of Exeter, UK, a MA in Political Science & Sociology from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, and a BA in Political Science from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.

For a few years I have been preoccupied with a doctoral dissertation that examines matters of method in the internationally acknowledged work of the late 'Cambridge School' classics in the history of political thought and the history of ideas (John Pocock, Quentin Skinner and John Dunn), which I have recently defended, whereas my broader academic and research interests fall into the domains of political thought and conceptual history, canonized political philosophy, methods and knowledge-based perspectives in the human sciences, as well as the study of Greek politics and Greek cultural and intellectual history. The research networks and learned societies where I have been more active in the recent years consist in millieus broadly dedicated to intellectual history, cultural history and political science.
