Daniel Sacilotto

Daniel Sacilotto is a PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). His research focuses on the reconciliation of rationalism and materialism, and the methodological relation between epistemology and ontology in contemporary philosophy. He is currently editing a full-length monograph tentatively titled, Saving the Noumenon: An Essay on the Foundations of Ontology, in which he proposes a critical reading of the ‘ontological turn’ in contemporary philosophy, and lays the foundations for a new transcendental epistemology, chiefly inspired by the works of Wilfrid Sellars, Robert Brandom, Alain Badiou, Lorenz Puntel, Ray Brassier, and Jay Rosenberg. He is adjunct faculty at CalArts.
