International Visitor
University of Patras, Greece

Pavlos Kontos is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Patras. His work focuses on Aristotle's practical philosophy and phenomenology. Some of his recent publications include Aristotle on the Scope of Practical Reason (Routledge, 2021), Evil in Aristotle (editor; Cambridge University Press, 2018), Phenomenology and the Primacy of the Political: Essays in Honor of Jacques Taminiaux (co-editor; Springer, 2017), and Aristotle's Moral Realism Reconsidered (Routledge, 2013). His Introduction to Aristotle's Ethics, originally published in Modern Greek with the untranslatable (!) title The two eu of eutuchia (Crete University Press; 2018, 2023), will soon be available in English (Palgrave Philosophy Today Series) and Chinese (Peking University Press).

Pavlos’ work has received support from various institutions, including the Humboldt Foundation, the Onassis Foundation in the USA, the National Humanities Center, and the Operational Programme Human Resources Development, Education and Lifelong Learning, co-financed by Greece and the European Union.

Currently, Pavlos is working as a co-editor, alongside C.D.C. Reeve, on Aristotle: The Complete Works, which is set to be published by Hackett.

Pavlos Kontos was nominated by the Department of Philosophy.
