Máté Veres

I specialize in Hellenistic philosophy, especially scepticism and Epicureanism, with further interests in post-Hellenistic philosophy, Early Modern philosophy, epistemology, and moral philosophy.

After receiving my PhD in December 2016, I have spent a year as a junior fellow at the University of Hamburg, in the framework of a DFG-funded project on the history of scepticism in ancient and medieval thought, and another year as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Geneva, funded by a grant from the Swiss Government Excellence program.

In the Wintersemester of 2018, I teach a course on ancient scepticism at the Department of Philosophy, University of Hamburg.
