Catalin Partenie, born in Pitesti, Romania, in 1962. Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow. Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Bucharest.
During my stay at NIAS I conducted research on Plato’s distinction between time and eternity, which I envisage turning into an article by the end of the summer. In the meantime I completed a study on Plato’s views on immortality, “Eternity Revisited”, which will be published this year in Romania. I have also completed another paper on Plato, “When You Cannot Do Philosophy by Yourself: Truth and Dialogue in Plato”, which I shall soon submit to the Utrecht-based journal An early draft of this last paper was read at a seminar organised by the Department of Philosophy, Leiden University. Needless to say, it has been interesting to meet so many scholars from all over the world.
