“I am from Brazil, graduated in psychology and master in philosophy (University of Sao Paulo). My contact with philosophy was somewhat late, it happened when I was studying psychology. Soon I realize that my heart was there, at the sphere of thought. This double formation allowed me to explore the relations between thought and psyche. I´m interested in social critic and subjectivity; social aspects of individual unconsciousness; critics of psychoanalysis; modern philosophy in special Hume, Kant, F. H. Jacobi, Schopenhauer. Since 2010, I have been working hardly on Nietzsche’s philosophy, with an additional attention to French readers of Nietzsche like Pierre Klossowski, Georges Bataille and Gilles Deleuze. I also develop research on philosophy of laughter, ancient philosophy, skepticism and Socratic irony. I´m a member of IAPH - The International Association for the Philosophy of Humor. I intend to write about different topics on modern philosophy, contemporary philosophy and reflections about Brazil culture and politics.”
