Olaluwatoni Alimi is a Klarman Postdoctoral Fellow in Classics and Philosophy at Cornell University. Alimi’s research spans ancient Roman philosophy, intellectual history, contemporary ethics and politics, and philosophy of religions. His first book, Slaves of God (Princeton University Press, 2024), explicates Augustine’s reasons for justifying slavery and argues that slavery is a central theme in his broader ethics and politics. Starting in Fall 2024, Alimi will be an Assistant Professor in Cornell’s Sage School of Philosophy.
