About The Event

Among the Catholic political thinkers of the 20th century, Augusto Del Noce stood out for his ability to trace the deep theological and philosophical roots of modern politics. In this talk, his English translator will discuss Del Noce's analysis of the rise of modern totalitarian movements, including the "western" forms that are still influencing our political life.

About our Scholar:

Carlo Lancellotti is Professor of Mathematics at the College of Staten Island & City University of New York. His field of interest is Mathematical Physics, with special emphasis on non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. Statistical mechanics strives to understand how the properties of macroscopic physical systems arise from the interactions among huge numbers of microscopic entities, such as atoms and molecules. This type of question leads to fascinating and hard mathematical problems. In particular, Dr. Lancellotti has been working on the so-called kinetic theory of plasmas and gravitating systems. Professor Lancellotti has translated three of the Italian philosopher Augusto Del Noce’s works into English. He has led various seminars on the thought of Del Noce and has also participated in Scala’s Love of Learning webinar series.
