I am Graziana – and I am so late it was fashionable a few seasons ago.
I am completing my PhD in Philosophy (History and Philosophy of Logic) at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa. My work focuses on Medieval Logic – in particular on XIV century theories of consequences – and on the notions of consequence, inference, entailment, validity. My thesis, under the supervision of Massimo Mugnai (SNS) and Calvin Normore (UCLA), is on Marsilius of Inghen’s Consequentiae – text of which I am preparing also a critical edition.
My main research interests are in the history of late medieval philosophy, medieval scientific thought, history and philosophy of logic.
I like to think that “…. philosophers’ convictions about the eternity of problems or conceptions were as baseless as a young girl’s conviction that this year’s hats are the only ones that could ever have been worn by a sane woman.” (R. G. Collingwood, An Autobiography, Oxford 1939, p. 65)
