Educated at the Ecole Normale in Paris, he lectured in the colleges of Evreux, Dieppe, Blois, Tou louse, Annecy and Casal-Montferrat, and became head of the education department under Mamiani in 186o. In 1863 he became professor of philosophy at the Istituto di Perfezionamento at Florence, and, in 1871, in the University of Rome. He is known especially as an historian of philosophy.
