Vladimir's research interests include various topics in the literary, philosophical and intellectual history of ancient Greece. He is particularly interested Greek thought on cognition, memory, sense-perception, and the emotions, and how it is expressed in the various genres of the ancient world. Vladimir's M.A. thesis examined the wax tablet model of memory in Plato's Theaetetus from the perspective of the wax tablet's literary history in the metaphorical language of tragedy and lyric. Beyond the field of Classics, he is intrigued by modern theories of metaphor, cognitive semantics and distributive approaches to cognition. When not researching, you will find him together with his wife, Maja, and son, Anton, or in the kitchen (he used to work as a professional cook).
