I am a specialist in Aristotle and the Aristotelian tradition in antiquity and beyond. The focus of my research is Aristotle’s philosophy of nature. I am the author of "Aristotelismo" (Einaudi, 2017), “Aristotelianism in the First Century BCE: Xenarchus of Seleucia” (Cambridge University Press, 2011), “Aristotle and Aristotle and the Science of Nature. Unity without Uniformity" (Cambridge University Press, 2005), and "Corpi e Movimenti. Il De caelo di Aristotele e la sua tradizione nel mondo antico" (Bibliopolis, 2001). I edited the "Brill's Companion to the Reception of Aristotle in Antiquity" (Brill, 2016), co-edited (together with David Lefebvre) the "Cambridge Critical Guide to Aristotle's Generation of Animals" (Cambridge University Press, 2017), and (together with Pierdaniele Giaretta) "Ancient Logic, Language, and Metaphysics. Selected Essays by Mario Mignucci" (Routledge 2019).
I held visiting appointments at the University of California at Berkeley, Ohio State University, University of Pittsburgh (twice), Virginia Tech, and Université Paris Diderot. In Winter 2008 I was a visiting member in the School of Historical Studies, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton.
