About

Lisa Shapiro is Professor of Philosophy at Simon Fraser University. Her research concerns accounts of human nature in the 17th and 18th centuries. In particular, she is interested the place of the passions (or emotions) in these accounts, as vehicles of human cognitive connection to the world. Her work has focused on Descartes, Spinoza and Hume, but also touched on Malebranche and Condillac. Her current project concerns accounts of the development of human rational capacities – or an embodied human mind – in the period. This research intersects with her commitment to rehabilitating the work of women thinkers of the early modern period. She is the PI on a SSHRC Partnership Development Grant New Narratives in the History of Philosophy in an effort to include many of these women (2015-2018). She is editor of the forthcoming Pleasure: A History in the Oxford Philosophical Concepts series. She is the translator and editor of The Correspondence of Princess Elisabeth of Bohemia and René Descartes and co-editor, with Martin Pickavé, of Emotion and Cognitive Life in Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy, as well as author of numerous articles.
