Federico Testa is British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Bristol, and holds a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Warwick and Monash University. He specializes in Continental Philosophy, focusing on twentieth-century French thought, and modern and contemporary readings of ancient philosophy. His work gravitates around the problem of norms, normativity, and modes of living and its formulations in ethics, politics, aesthetics and the history of philosophy. He is currently revising his monograph On the Politics of the Living: Georges Canguilhem and Michel Foucault on Life and Norms for publication with Bloomsbury Academic, and developing a new research project on Georges Canguilhem and politics. He has also published on the notion of philosophy as a way of life and the modern receptions of the ancient philosophical schools, having translated the work of Pierre Hadot (Selected Writings: Philosophy as Practice [Bloomsbury], with M. Sharpe) and Jean-Marie Guyau (The Ethics of Epicurus [Bloomsbury], co-edited with K. Ansell-Pearson), and has recently published an edited volume on the idea of philosophy as a way of life (Filosofia como Modo de Vida: Ensaios Escolhidos [Edições 70], with M. Faustino).
