Paola Nicolas

I am currently a post-doctoral teaching fellow at Fordham University (NYC). I received my Ph.D. from the University Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne in December 2015.

I work primarily on ethics, philosophy and history of religion, history of philosophy, late scholasticism and early modern philosophy. My dissertation is entitled: "From the Sin to the Moral Fault: Theologies of Moral Imputation from Late Scholasticism to Early Modern philosophy (15th-17th centuries)”. Right now, I am developing a specialty in bioethics.

I am also a former student from the École Normale Supérieure (Ulm, Paris), I passed the agrégation de philosophie (the most competitive philosophical examination in France) and I have taught for institutions such as University Pars I Panthéon-Sorbonne, New York University, City University of New York or Fordham University.
