Dr. Albert Joosse

Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg
Junior Fellow
September 2013 - Juli 2014


Before joining the FRIAS, I was a postdoctoral research fellow of the DFG-Graduiertenkolleg 1288 ‘Friends, Patrons, Followers’ at the University of Freiburg. I hold a PhD (2011) from the University of Utrecht; my dissertation dealt with Platonic and Stoic views on friendship and self-knowledge. I studied Philosophy and Ancient History at King’s College London (MA, 2005) and the University of Utrecht (MA, 2007), respectively.

      How to Teach Philosophy: The Ancient Reception of the Platonic Alcibiades

      My project is an investigation of ancient responses to the Platonic dialogue Alcibiades. This text discusses and exemplifies the proper ways of teaching philosophy. I am interested in the ways in which later authors drew on the Alcibiades to formulate and communicate their own ideas about philosophical education. During my FRIAS fellowship I will especially concentrate on two authors from late antiquity, Proclus and Olympiodorus.
