Overview


Anthony Hooper specialises in Ancient Philosophy, working particularly on Plato and Pre-Socratic Philosophy. His research focuses particularly on intersections between Greek philosophy, poetry, and religion. Anthony’s current major research project is a detailed examination of the presentation of immortality in Plato’s Symposium, and deals particularly with concepts of identity, memory, and inspiration. He is strongly committed to collaborative, interdisciplinary research, and is currently engaged in two such projects: Aspects of Death and the Afterlife in Ancient Greece and Plato on Comedy. His wider research interests extend to Modern Philosophy (particularly 18th and 19th Century German philosophy), Classics (with expertise in Homer and Old Comedy), and Religious Studies. He also has a keen interest in Chinese Philosophy, especially Daoism. Anthony completed his PhD in 2015 in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Sydney, and joins us from Durham University, having been employed from 2016-19 as a Junior Research Fellow in the Department of Classics and Ancient History.
