Dr Mattia Gallotti
Mattia is a philosopher with a background in economics and interests in academic governance and innovation. His work is conceptual and the subject is social philosophy. Over the years, he has sought to connect and integrate concepts of social ontology across a range of intellectual discourses and styles, from cognitive science to theology. Before joining LIS as an Associate Professor, Mattia lectured on the philosophy of the social sciences at LSE and he managed a multidisciplinary program on the human mind in the School of Advanced Study at the University of London. As a postdoc, he held fellowships at Columbia University and the Jean Nicod Institute in Paris.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Presented a paper on how to measure interdisciplinary excellence at the biannual meeting of the European Philosophy of Science Association (EPSA) in Belgrade, September 2023.
Mattia teaches critical thinking skills and concepts of interdisciplinarity across a range of modules, with a focus on philosophical analysis, writing techniques, research management, and collective intelligence.
As a Module Lead, he coordinates the design and delivery of year one Problems 1c, as well as year two & three Thinking Through Writing.
As Head of Research and Development, Mattia leads on the development of research activities that provide support and inspiration for interdisciplinary learning.
His own research revolves around questions of interdisciplinary theory and practice including (1) the relationship between complexity and interdisciplinarity; (2) integration as the methodology of interdisciplinarity; and (3) the evaluation of interdisciplinary research.
In the past, Mattia has researched the relationship between mind and society. Understanding the social world necessitates the integration of concepts of collective intentionality, much in the same way as interdisciplinary intelligence emerges from the integration of concepts and methods across a network of distributed knowledge.
