Profile

Chiara Robbiano was born in Genoa (Italy), where she received her degree in Philosophy (1996). Her interest in Ancient Greek philosophy and the ways of expression of philosophical texts brought her (1997) to Leiden (the Netherlands) where she continued her studies among classicists with a taste for philosophical texts. At the University of Leiden she wrote and defended her PhD thesis on Parmenides (Becoming Being, 2005) which was published by Akademia Verlag (2006). She has taught at the universities of Leiden and Utrecht for several years and she is an now Assistant professor of Philosophy, honours director and tutor (academic advisor) at University College Utrecht. She is publishing her work on comparative and cross-cultural philosophy in, among others, Philosophy East and West, and Ancient Philosophy and in books on Greek and Eastern Thought.
