Matthieu is particularly interested in al-Farabi. His interests converge, for instance, in the debate over ‘logic vs grammar’ in 10th century Baghdad, and in Farabi’s theory of signification as a response to that debate. Matthieu cut his philosophical teeth studying medieval Jewish philosophy, and hopes to remain active in that field as well. Finally,  he maintains a steadfast love for good food and bad puns.

Ancient Philosophy, Classical Islamic Philosophy, Jewish Philosophy, Philosophy of Language
