About Nicoletta Montaner

I defended my dissertation “Hic Rhodus, hic salta! Three conceptions of the modern inequality paradox” in late 2018 and I currently teach in the Computer Science and Philosophy departments at Loyola University Chicago. My research focuses on competing conceptions of modern social inequality. In particular, I focus on the origins, political expressions, and significance of inequality in the thought of G.W.F Hegel, Karl Marx and John Maynard Keynes. Both my teaching and research are interdisciplinary, drawing on history, economics, law and political science in addition to philosophy. Since Spring 2019, I have taught a graduate seminar in Social, Ethical and Legal Issues in Computing.
