2017-2020: The Liar and its Revenge in Context (with Lorenzo Rossi)

Together with Lorenzo Rossi, I have been awarded a FWF grant of more than EUR 390.000 for a project titled ‘The Liar and its Revenge in Context‘.

The project will start in January 2017 and will last for 43 months. It involves two post-doctoral researchers. Dr. Lorenzo Rossi, who earned his PhD at the University of Oxford with a thesis on semantic paradoxes and revenge, will be a post-doc for the entire duration of the project. A second post-doctoral position, funded for 18 months, will be advertised next year. In addition to this, the funding includes two one-month visits for the two main project members, one at the New York University (NYU), the other at the University of Connecticut (UCONN), as well as a number of workshops and conferences.

2013-2015: Inference and Logic (with Florian Steinberger)

The Inference and Logic project was funded by the British Academy and led by Julien Murzi and Florian Steinberger. It aimed at investigating inferentialist approaches to logic: approaches according to which (roughly) the meaning of a logical expression is determined by the way we use it, and to know the meaning of a logical expression is to know how to use it. Two controversial but, we think, fecund thoughts! Between April 2013 and July 2015, we wrote a bunch of papers, organised a conference, and worked on a book.
