RECENT NEWS

  • My paper "Belief, Correctness and Constitutivity" has been accepted for publication on the European Journal of Philosophy.

  • The Synthese Special issue 'Truth and Epistemic Norms' (co-edited with Julien Dutant and Anne Meylan) is now in production and will be out very soon. The issue brings together a selection of papers authored by prestigious philosophers discussing aspects of the work of Prof. Pascal Engel on the topics of truth and epistemic normativity. The selection is followed by a response of Pascal Engel. This is a link to the Introduction.

  • I'm happy to announce that I've been offered a position in the Hundred Talent Program (Humanities and Social Science) at Zhejiang University (China)! This is a 6 year research fellowship starting Spring/Summer 2017.




  • Proud to announce that I published my first article in French! "La connaissance et la fonction e l'assertion" in J. Chevalier and B. Gaultier, La connaissance et ses raisons (Many thanks to Benoit Gaultier for his patient proofreading).

* The list includes news in the past year (April 2016 - April 2017). 

















 
I am a postdoctoral Visiting Fellow at the department of philosophy of the University of Southampton and recipient of a three-year (2016-2019) Advanced Postdoc.Mobility grant from the Swiss National Research Foundation. 
From Summer 2017 I will be also part of the Hundred Talent Program at Zhejiang University (China).  

My main interests are in Epistemology, Ethics and Philosophy of mind. In particular, I'm interested in the nature of belief and its relation with truth (the aim of belief) and the relations between knowledge, practical rationality and assertion.
