Laura Anna Macor is Associate Professor of History of Philosophy at the University of Verona (Italy). She studied at the Scuola Normale Superiore and the University of Pisa (1999-2003), and earned her PhD in Philosophy from the University of Padua (2007). Over the years she has received prestigious individual awards, including an Alexander von Humboldt-Fellowship at the Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt and a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship at the University of Oxford. She is interested in early-modern philosophy, with a special focus on the Enlightenment and eighteenth-century German thought, which she deals with from an interdisciplinary perspective open particularly to literature, theology and the history of language. More recently she has developed a lively interest in Philosophy as a Way of Life, which she is currently applying to the late German Enlightenment up to Kant. She is the author of five scholarly monographs and several essays/chapters, including the following: Die Bestimmung des Menschen (1748-1800). Eine Begriffsgeschichte (Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt 2013); Il mestiere di uomo. La concezione pratica della filosofia nel tardo illuminismo tedesco (Brescia 2023).
