Some concepts run through all aeons and conceptual schemes, puzzling us and challenging us every step of the way. Structure is one of them; power is another. Both these concepts have occupied my research across ancient and contemporary metaphysics, across the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of religion, with Neo-Aristotelian approach to ontology. In metaphysics, I am particularly interested in questions concerning fundamentality; composition; the nature of properties, dispositions, relations; the metaphysics of substance; and causation. I have also explored these topics also in Anaxagoras, Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, Gregory of Nyssa, and Thomas Aquinas.
