Philosophy Professor Diego Lucci Discusses Latest Book, “John Locke's Christianity”

Professor in Philosophy Diego Lucci, who, beyond a beloved AUBG professor, is also a prolific writer and researcher, has just published a new book. “John Locke's Christianity,” published by Cambridge University Press, is an impressive scholarly work that offers an in-depth exploration of the English philosopher’s thinking. The result of years of hard work, the book is, in Lucci’s words, a “detailed and systematic examination and reassessment of Locke’s original, heterodox, and internally coherent version of Protestant Christianity.”

In the over 15 years that he has been teaching at AUBG, Lucci, who comes from Italy, has become an integral part of university life. In 2016, the students from More Honors Academy gave him The Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 2017, he received the Excellence in Teaching Award for his contribution to academic life at AUBG. We spoke to Professor Lucci to learn more about his latest academic work, why he enjoys teaching at AUBG, and what student achievements make him most proud.
