About Pavel Gregoric

 Dr. Pavel Gregoric obtained his BPhil and DPhil degrees from the University of Oxford, he has taught philosophy at the University of Zagreb from 2000-2017 and now holds the position of a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Philosophy in Zagreb. He has held visiting positions at Central European University in Budapest, Humboldt-Universität in Berlin and at UC Berkeley. Dr. Gregoric joined Representation and Reality in October 2017, initially for five months, but his tenure was extended to June 2019. As of March 2018, he joined the Core Group of Representation and Reality.

Dr. Gregoric wrote the book Aristotle on the Common Sense (Oxford University Press, 2007) which has become the standard scholarly work on the Aristotelian notion of a common sense, a higher-order perceptual capacity which monitors operation of the five special senses and compares and integrates their reports. This notion looms large in three texts of Parva Naturalia—in De sensu, De somno et vigilia and De insomniis—and it has been taken up by later Greek, Arabic and Latin commentators. Dr. Gregoric’s expertise on this topic is of interest to the members of the group who are working on related topics for the volume of papers on the senses and for the volume of papers on sleep and dreams, planned for completion by the end of 2019. 

Forthcoming publications in 2019-2020:


  • Introduction to Volume 2: Sleeping and Dreaming in the Aristotelian Tradition (with Jakob Leth Fink)
  • Introduction to Volume 3: Cognition and Conceptualization in the Aristotelian Tradition (with Sten Ebbesen)
  • Aristotle and Michael of Ephesus on the Deceptive Character of Dreams (planned in Volume 2)
