University Education 

Eugenio Luciano obtained his bachelor's degree in philosophy at University of Rome La Sapienza in 2016 with a thesis focusing on ontologies of the human being within the Western philosophical tradition. 

In 2018, he completed an MA in environment and natural resources at the University of Iceland, working on the theory of the Anthropocene between natural, social, and human sciences. He is currently researching on the topic of the 'Anthropocene hypothesis.' 


His doctoral research studies the structure and birth of the Anthropocene Hypothesis. The research merges themes in philosophy of geology with text mining and discourse analysis. His areas of interest lie in Anthropocene Studies, history and philosophy of science, traditional epistemology, and philosophy of geology.
