Emanuele Coccia

Emanuele Coccia is an Italian philosopher who lives in Paris, where he teaches at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), one of the most important schools of contemporary human sciences. Starting from studies on Averroes and Averroism, his research turned to the ontological status of images and their regulatory power, and to the investigation about the nature of living beings. Regarding these issues, he has published numerous books, translated into various languages, including Sensible Life(Il Mulino, 2011), which analyzes sensitivity as a complementary, rather than opposed, ability to rational thinking, The good in things. Advertising as a moral discourse(Il Mulino, 2014), and the most recent and well-known Life of Plants: A Metaphysics of mixture (Il Mulino, 2018), which has been translated into ten languages. He has collaborated on editorial projects with the philosopher Giorgio Agamben and held lectures and courses in the universities of Freiburg, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, Düsseldorf, Amsterdam, at Columbia University, and Princeton
