Alessio Lembo is a PhD student at the University of Urbino - Carlo Bo. He graduated from the University of Salerno, in 2014, with a Bachelor’s degree in History of Political Thought, composing a dissertation on the concept of authority based on the interpretation of Herbert Marcuse. He then completed a Master’s degree in Early Modern Philosophy (2017), also at the University of Salerno, where he wrote a dissertation entitled: "Platonic and Cartesian themes in Spinoza’s Early Theory of Knowledge". His current research considers the relationships between Spinoza and Jewish thought, Descartes and Hobbes, as well as contemporary interpretations of Spinoza (in, e.g., Martinetti, Strauss, Deleuze) in terms of the relationship between knowledge and politics. More specifically, he has focused on work by the Italian philosopher Piero Martinetti – both from a historical point of view, by analyzing his political positions towards Fascism, and from a theoretical and moral perspective, in terms of his interpretation of Spinoza.
