She has also published several articles in French, Italian, English, German and Norwegian concerning the problem of tolerance in the modern philosophy, the interpretation of the woman being in Spinoza’s thinking, the concept of peace, the concept of democracy in relationships with imagination, the importance of epistemology for clinical practice. She is now involved in research concerning the problem of prophetism between political utopia, and scientific prediction. Her research will critically examine the prophetic imagination within the field of science, in order to capture the processes, relationships and connections between it and rational strategies, which together may render new forms of social attitudes. She looks for a way to formulate the problem of the interaction between prophetic imagination and rational forecast in so far as they are strategies of social integration.
