I received my Master’s degree in philosophy at Bologna University in 1984 and my PhD at the same university in 1989, with a thesis on Brentano’s epistemology. I then spent a semester at Graz university in 1987. For ten years, I taught Philosophy and History in Italian secondary school, and I was appointed as Lecturer in Logic and Philosophy of science at Padua University in 1999. Since 2001 I have been associate professor of Logic and Philosophy of Science at Urbino University. In 2004 I qualified as full professor of logic and philosophy of science.
The ‘fil rouge’ of my research has been the relation between mathematics and experience in modern science, with particular attention to physics, cognitive psychology, and history of science.
