Lucia Procuranti is a researcher of History of Philosophy at the Department of Human Sciences. She works in particular about the history of modern philosophy. Her research method takes into account the history of the philosophical problems, the search for sources and the study of the philosophical lexicon. She works on the thought of different authors belonging to the modern era, such as: Leibniz, Newton, Euler and Kant. She started her research activity, dealing with the contributions that these authors gave to the historical development of the scientific debate about the constitution of chemical and physical matter and about the beauty of nature. She is currently continuing with the study of the thought of these authors, in particular with research concerning the perception of beauty and the formation of taste judgment. Another field of research that she deals with is that of the philosophy of medicine and care; specially about the relationship between the mind and the body. In this context are included the research on the philosophy of motherhood, on the studies of neonatology and on the use of modern technologies for the knowledge and the sensory and psychic development of the fetus.
