Professor of philosophy who wrote on parapsychology. He
was born on September 9, 1896, at Arezzo, Italy, and he studied
at the University of Rome (LL.B., 1918; Ph.D., 1920). He
taught at the University of Pisa (1932–34), the University of
Messina (1935), the University of Genoa (1936), and the University
of Rome (beginning in 1937).
Spirito developed an interest in parapsychology as it related
to his own scholarly discipline, and he wrote several related
books. He also attended the First International Conference of
Parapsychological Studies in Utrecht, Netherlands, in 1953.
