PROFILE


Paolo Quintili was born in Naples in 1963. As researcher of scientific ideas’ philosophy and history, he studied western materialism between the seventeenth and eighteenth century, rationalism and philosophy of nature in the modern age in relation to “art”. He mainly focused on philosophers of the Enlightenment and namely on the Philosophes of the Encyclopédie, technicians and arts and corporations researchers (Diderot, D’Alembert, Marmontel, Deleyre, Perronet et oth.). He then extended his analysis to the French Seventeenth century’s mechanicalist and materialistic thought (J. Meslier) and to the libertine doctors. After graduating at “Tor Vergata” University in Rome (1987), with a Thesis on Nietzsche and French Moralists, from 1990 to 1999 he carried on doctorate activity at Paris 1 – Panthéon-Sorbonne
University, namely at the Centre d’Histoire des Systèmes de Pensée Moderne (CHSPM), as a member of the Groupe de recherche sur l’histoire du matérialisme, preparing upon direction of Olivier R. Bloch a Doctorate Thèse on the «critic philosophy » of Denis Diderot’s life titled: La pensée critique de Diderot et l’Encyclopédie. Science, poésie, idéologie. 1742-1782. In 1999 he therefore qualified as Docteur en Philosophie de l’Université de Paris 1. He cured many Italian editions of works by Diderot and D’Alembert and prepared for Honoré Champion editor (Paris) a critical edition of the Éléments de physiologie (1774-1782) by Diderot. He is now projecting an Italian complete edition of the Testament (Mémoire des pensées et des sentiments) by J. Meslier, of Lettres à Sophie Volland and of Salons by Diderot. In July 2006 he achieved the l’Habilitation à diriger des recherches (HDR) at Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University, upon direction of Jean Salem, with a thesis on the materialism of the Enlightement age that is now published by Honoré Champion editor. He recently started up researches on the French roots of Giacomo Leopardi’s philosophy.
