Silvia Caprioglio Panizza

Interested in

Iris Murdoch



After a number of years teaching ethics in various forms, I am now spending a couple of years as Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellow studying the question of moral impossibility. I used to teach at University College Dublin, University of East Anglia, and short term in Cambridge and Rome. I am interested in what morality is, what motivates us, how we use the imagination, in art and literature, and in all of these questions particularly in the context of our lives as and with animals. The two philosophers I draw on mostly are Iris Murdoch and Simone Weil. Also in a Weilian spirit, I  am keen on sharing philosophy outside of academia through talks, workshops, and community teaching.
