Boston College
Dept of Philosophy

Jean-Luc Solère

Associate Professor





Research interests:

My field of research (and of teaching) is mainly medieval and modern philosophy. I am especially interested in modern scholastic and its influence on 17th C. thought (mostly Cartesianism, Pierre Bayle). My favorite subjects are: metaphysics (the problem of time, the concept of representation), natural philosophy (intensification of forms), theories of soul, and ethics.



Biographical Summary:

After my philosophy education in Paris, I have taught at the universities of Lille, Brussels and Louvain, while being a researcher of the CNRS (Paris). I came to Boston College in January 05 as a visiting professor.
