Glenn W. Most is Professor of Greek Philology at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Visiting Professor on the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago, and External Scientific Member of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin. He has published books on Classics, on the history and methodology of Classical studies, on comparative literature, cultural studies, and the history of religion, on literary theory and on the history of art, and has published numerous articles, reviews, and translations in these fields and also on modern philosophy and literature. He has recently published a new Loeb edition of the Presocratics and another French edition of the same authors (both together with André Laks), and a co-edited volume on philological methods in a variety of canonical written traditions (together with Anthony Grafton), Canonical Texts and Scholarly Practices (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2016); the latter arose out of a summer workshop at the MPIWG. He is currently working on various projects involving both ancient Greek philology and the comparison of philological practices in different periods and cultures.
