History of Philosophy
Ancient Greek Philosophy
In his academic teaching, Professor Konstantinos Th. Petsios focused his attention on the study of philosophical problems over the diachrony of their historical imprint, as they emerge in the Ancient period, the Middle Ages, and the modern times. In parallel with the study and teaching of Ancient Greek and European Philosophy at undergraduate and postgraduate level, he has focused his scientific interest on the research of the handwritten Modern Greek philosophical tradition. In almost all his previous and recent studies, unknown and in many cases non-catalogued sources are utilized and with the interpretive reconstruction of the evidence he attempts to formulate the theoretical framework within which the philosophical connections between Ancient Greek, European and Modern Greek Philosophy are illustrated (from the 15th to the 20th century AD).
