Postdoc researcher (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow) at the Faculty of Theology, Church History Section, University of Copenhagen. Sara Taglialatela holds one PhD in Philosophy (Theoretical Philosophy) from the Ca’ Foscari University in Venice (2009) and one joint PhD in Philosophy (History of Philosophy) from the Freie Universität Berlin and the Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa (2018).
After having studied Giordano Bruno’s ars memoriae and the relation between his works on mnemonics and philosophy in the first phase of his reflection (1582–1585), she is currently researching Bruno’s stay at Wittenberg (1586–1588) to identify possible interweavings of the discussions on the artes liberales among the Lutherans at the Leucorea University. This project (acronym: LEUKOS) has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 101029860.
Her research interests are: the contemporary debate (continental and analytical traditions) on the use of metaphors in philosophy and science; philosophical historiography and metaphorology as an auxiliary discipline of the history of philosophy; historical-metaphorological reconstruction of the mnemonic tradition and its interplay with the philosophical theories of memory up to the seventeenth century; Hans Blumenberg; Giordano Bruno; Philipp Melanchthon.
