Personal profile

Research interests (short)

I have broad interests in ancient philosophy and thought. I have particular research interests in:

  • Ancient philosophy and religion
  • Early Greek (‘Presocratic’) philosophy
  • Ancient Greek theology and religion
  • Hellenistic scepticism

I am interested in supervising PhD students who wish to pursue projects in those areas.

Biographical details

I received my BA (2006) in Classics and my MPhil (2007) and PhD (2011) in ancient philosophy at St. John’s College, Cambridge. My MPhil work concentrated on ancient Greek Pyrrhonian scepticism. My doctoral dissertation (awarded the Hare Prize) was entitled Mortal and Divine in Early Greek Epistemology and focused in particular on the epistemologies and theologies of Hesiod, Xenophanes and Parmenides in their historical and cultural contexts. Before joining the Departments of Philosophy and Classics at King’s, I was a Junior Research Fellow at Jesus College, Cambridge (2010-2012).

Tips on pronouncing my name: the ‘proper’ Hebrew pronunciation of my name is much like the pronunciation of the Spanish name ‘Raúl’, except with a ‘Sh’ instead of the ‘R’. In the UK, however, I go by ‘Sol’, which is also a perfectly welcome, informal way to spell my name!
