Bio note

João Constâncio (born in Lisbon in 1971) is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the NOVA FCSH (Nova University of Lisbon), where he has been teaching since 1996. He earned his PhD there in 2005 with a dissertation on bios and psychē in Plato, and in 2014 he became ‘Professor Agregado’ with his work on Nietzsche and Aesthetics. He is now the Head of the Philosophy Department at NOVA FCSH, and he directs the MA Course “Estética & Estudos Artísticos”. Since 1996, when he first became Assistant Professor at the Philosophy Department of NOVA FCSH, he has taught on many topics — from Ancient Philosophy to Modern Philosophy to Film & Philosophy— but his main teaching focus is now the field of Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art. From 2011 to 2015 he was the PI of the FCT research project, ‘Nietzsche and the Contemporary Debate on the Self’ (PTDC/FIL-FIL/111444/2009), and from 2009 to 2017 he directed IFILNOVA’s Lisbon Nietzsche Group. As a research group within IFILNOVA, The Lisbon Nietzsche Group (formerly termed “Nietzsche International Lab, NIL”) has obtained funding for three research projects since 2010 and, during this whole period, has always integreted between 7 to 9 post-doc fellows working on Nietzsche. The Lisbon Nietzsche Group belongs to the HyperNietzsche research platform (headquartered at the École Normale Supérieure de Paris), and collaborates with the most important Nietzsche groups in Europa, the USA, and Brazil.

João Constâncio is the author of Arte e niilismo: Nietzsche e o enigma do mundo (Lisboa, tinta-da-china, 2013), which was nominated for the Portuguese PEN Club award of best non-fiction book of 2013. He is co-editor of five books on Nietzsche, published by Walter de Gruyter: Nietzsche and the Problem of Subjectivity (Berlin/ Boston, 2015; co-edited with Maria João Branco and Bartholomew Ryan); As the Spider Spins: Essays on Nietzsche’s Critique and Use of Language (Berlin/ Boston, 2012; with Maria João Branco); and Nietzsche on Instinct and Language (Berlin/ Boston, 2011; with Maria João Branco). He is also co-editor, with Scarlett Marton and Maria João Branco, of the collection of essays, Sujeito, décadence e art: Nietzsche e a modernidade (Lisboa/ Rio de Janeiro, tinta-da-china, 2014). More recently, he has co-edited, with Tom Bailey, the volume Nietzsche and Kantian Ethics (Bloomsbury, 2017), and he was one of the series editors of the three volumes collection Nietzsche’s Engagements with Kant and the Kantian Legacy (Bloomsbury, 2017). João Constâncio has published more than 30 articles in journals and collections of essays, including: ‘On Consciousness: Nietzsche’s Departure from Schopenhauer’, in Nietzsche-Studien 40 (2011); ''A Sort of Schema of Ourselves’: On Nietzsche’s ‘Ideal’ and ‘Concept’ of Freedom', in Nietzsche-Studien 41 (2012); and “Nietzsche and Schopenhauer: On Nihilism and the Ascetic ‘Will to Nothingness’”, in: Shapshay, S. (ed.), The Palgrave Handbook to Nietzsche, London: Springer/ Palgrave. His other publications include a translation of Heidegger’s ‘Der Spruch des Anaximander’. In 2015 he taught a mini-course on “Ethics & Economics” at the Nova School of Business and Economics, and he published an extensive review of Thoma Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century in the portuguese nwespaper Público.
