Faith McFadden

Faith received B.A.s in Classics, Philosophy, Art History, and Classical Civilizations magna cum laude from Duquesne University (2012) with concentrations in Greek, ancient philosophy, and the ancient Near East. Her undergraduate Honors Thesis, “On Ho Eros: Intersections of Love, Birth, and Wisdom in the Platonic Dialogues,” explored the relationship of love and ho daimon in Plato’s philosophy.

Her main research interest centers on the Platonic dialogues, and what philosophical impacts might arise from a more philological study. She is also interested in Greek literature, specifically epic and tragedy, and the use of tragic and epic motifs in philosophy. Other areas of interest are Ancient philosophy and animal motifs in art and literature. Email Faith McFadden.
