Simona Forti is widely recognized in Italy and aboard for her far-reaching studies on Hannah Arendt’s thought and the philosophical idea of Totalitarianism. In recent years she has given important contributions to the debate on [biopolitics] launched by Michel Foucault, by focusing on Nazi biopolitics of the souls and democratic biopolitics of the bodies. In her last volume, "New Demons: Rethinking Power and Evil Today," translated into English and published by Stanford University Press in 2015, she deals with the contemporary reshaping of the notion of Evil. In the Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, Brad Evans (University of Bath) began his review of the book by stating, "Simona Forti's book is a sophisticated and theoretically rich text, which demands wide readership." Forti offers a new and inspiring genealogy of the relationship between evil and power, contending that evil must be explored in tandem with the passive attitude towards rule-following, the need for normalcy and recognition, the desire to stay alive at all costs, and the desire for obedience nurtured by our contemporary mass democracies.

In 2016-2017 as well as in 2011-2012, held lessons and seminars at The New School for Social Research in New York, an institution which has actively contributed to spread the European philosophical tradition known as Continental philosophy in the US. Moreover, during the spring semester 2013–14 she has been awarded a “Fulbright Distinguished Chair” at Northwestern University, (Evanston, Il).
