Announcing Professor Ana Laura Edelhoff 

published 18 June 2018

Dr Edelhoff is a teaching fellow at the Universität Hamburg, where she specialises in ancient philosophy with a particular interest in Aristotle and Plato’s metaphysics. She is particularly interested in the relevance and interest of Aristotle for contemporary debates in metaphysics.


Dr Edelhoff is also interested in contemporary metaphysics, especially in Neo-Aristotelian approaches to grounding, causation and mereology. 

In her dissertation she reinterpreted Aristotle’s theory of ‘priority in substance.’ She argued that Aristotle built on Plato’s criteria for priority with two complex accounts.


In 2013 Dr Edelhoff won the Sidgwick Philosophy Prize from Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
