Bio note

Maria Filomena Molder is Full Professor of the Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas – Universidade Nova de Lisboa, and was a Visiting Professor at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, Paris (2011); member of the Conseil Scientifique of the Collège International de Philosophie, Paris (2003-2006/2006-2009), of the Groupe International de Recherches sur Nietzsche (GIRN), and of Ifilnova. Since 1978, Maria Filomena Molder has been writing extensively about aesthetic problems – in their quality as knowledge and language problems – for several philosophical and literary journals, including the following ones: Filosofia e Epistemologia, Prelo, Análise, Revista Ler, Sub-Rosa, A Phala, Internationale Zeitschrift für Philosophie, Philosophica, Revista Belém, Dedalus, Rue Descartes, Chroniques de Philosophie, Revue Europe, Lettre International, Revista Azafea, Revista Electra. Additionally, since 1980, she participated in countless Conferences, Congresses and Meetings, both in Portugal and abroad. From 1984 onwards, Maria Filomena Molder has also been writing for catalogues and other publications on art in general and on particular artists, both Portuguese and foreign, amongst which: Jorge Martins, Ruy Leitão, Rui Chafes, Helena Almeida, Ana Vieira, Julião Sarmento, Rui Sanches, José Pedro Croft, Bernard Plossu, Juan Muñoz, Noronha da Costa, Antony Gormley, Louise Bourgeois, Francisco Tropa, Ana Hatherly, João Queiroz, Jorge Queiroz and Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso.

PhD in 1992 on Goethe’s Morphological Thought.

 

Academic Expertise and research interests

Maria Filomena Molder’s philosophical interests converge towards aesthetical issues. Principal authors comprise: Dante, Kant, Goethe, Baudelaire, Nietzsche, Warburg, Wittgenstein, Benjamim, Rilke, Broch, Colli, and Jorge de Sena. One way or the other, one finds in all of these authors the conviction that art and poetry are forms of knowledge of a generative kind, that is to say, they allow us to see, through its expression, the very conditions with which one apprehends reality, by granting us a presentation of it. In this measure, the knowledge of art and of poetry is also a form of self-knowledge. Ever since the beginning, the goal of Molder’s researches has been the demonstration of the fertility allowed for by aesthetical issues towards the understanding of that which philosophy may be.
