Ana Falcato

Ana Falcato is currently an FCT post-doc fellow at the Nova Institute of Philosophy (IFILNOVA) of the New University of Lisbon, where she conducts research on the literary and critical output of the South-African writer and Nobel Prize Winner, J.M. Coetzee. Between 2013 and 2015 she was a Humboldt Research Fellow at both the Johannes-Gutenberg Universität Mainz and the University of Oxford.

She is a member of Coetzee-Collective, of the research team of Léxico de Termos Kantianos em Língua Portuguesa, an integrated member of the IFILNOVA, collaborating with both the AELAB and the EPLAB.

Her current research focuses mainly on J.M. Coetzee’s longstanding criticism of the Ethics and Politics of the Enlightenment, but also broaches the prolific dialogue some contemporary moral philosophers have kept with the South-African novelist since the 90s. At present, she is translating some critical work produced by Coetzee into Portuguese.

Besides the stated main line of reseach, she has lately given some attention to traditional and more recent philosophical and literary treatments of moral emotions.

 

Main publications include:

O Contextualismo na Filosofia da Linguagem (Lisboa: Colibri, 2013); ‘On Occasion: Invisible Minimalism and the Pragmatic Frame’, Daimon: Revista Internacional de Filosofía (2016); ‘Fantasmas de Realismo na Obra de J. M. Coetzee’, Trans/Form/Ação (2016); ‘The Ethics of Reading J.M. Coetzee’, Studies in the Novel (forthcoming); Philosophy in the Condition of Modernism (London/New York: Palgrave Macmillan, to appear in 2018); Intersubjectivity and Values: Phenomenological Perspectives (Ed. Luís de Sousa e Ana Falcato), Cambridge Scholar Publishing (to appear in 2018).
