I am mostly working on the French early modern philosophy, which means the thought of philosophers from the sixteenth (Montaigne), seventeenth (Descartes, Malebranche) and eighteenth (Voltaire, Rousseau, Diderot) centuries (enlightenment). The questions I work on are those related to imagination as a faculty of the mind, that is, surrounding knowledge (epistemology) and creativity (aesthetics) ; and those related to historical progress.
