Professor Lucci Invited to Write Chapters of Prestigious Volumes by Cambridge and Oxford UP

Diego Lucci, Professor of Philosophy and History, was recently invited to contribute several chapters to volumes that will appear in 2024-2026, including four books by Cambridge University Press and Oxford University Press.

One of Professor Lucci’s forthcoming papers is entitled “Locke on Faith, Resurrection, and Salvation” and is part of the section on religion in The Oxford Handbook of Locke, edited by Prof. Patrick Connolly of Johns Hopkins University. Professor Lucci is also writing a paper on “Locke’s Concept of Faith as Assent and His Criticism of Enthusiasm”, for the Cambridge Critical Guide to Locke’s “An Essay Concerning Human Understanding”, edited by Prof. Matthew Leisinger of York University (Canada). Another forthcoming paper by Professor Lucci deals with “Natural Law in Locke and Hobbes” and will appear in A History of Natural Law, edited by Prof. Justin Dyer (University of Texas at Austin) and Dr. William Simpson (University of Cambridge) and published by Cambridge UP. The same press will publish the three-volume Cambridge History of Antisemitism, edited by Prof. Steven Katz (Boston University) and containing Professor Lucci’s essay on “Antisemitism in English Thought from Hobbes to Disraeli”.

At present, Professor Lucci is also working on other studies on Locke, deism, and the early English Enlightenment, which will appear in various journals and in volumes of Brill, T&T Clark, Palgrave Macmillan, and other important publishing houses. He is also editing a special issue on “Locke and Religion” for the Italian journal Studi Lockiani, of which he is an associate editor. On December 14, 2023 he will present his research on Locke at Sofia University. This lecture is organized by the Bulgarian Philosophical Society, Sofia University, and the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

Professor Lucci has been at AUBG since 2006 and is also a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society of London, a Senior Fellow of the Maimonides Centre for Advanced Studies at the University of Hamburg, and the General Secretary of the International Society for Intellectual History, whose conference of 2017 he organized at AUBG. In the past, he taught at his alma mater, the University of Naples “Federico II”, and at Boston University and the University of Missouri St. Louis. He is the author of three books and over fifty journal articles and book chapters. He is also the editor of six volumes. In 2021, Cambridge University Press published his third book-length monograph, John Locke’s Christianity.
