Exciting news: The Philosophical Quarterly just published my paper on non-normative logical pluralism and the normativity objection! In the paper, I argue that recent attempts to save certain forms of logical pluralism from the so-called normativity objection (aka the collapse argument) by claiming that logic is not normative are not successful. The paper is now … Continue reading Paper published!
I reviewed the collection of papers "The semantics and pragmatics of quotation" (2017, Springer) edited by Paul Saka and Michael Johnson for the journal Language. It's a nice volume that assembles some state-of-the-art research on quotation and quotation-like constructions. The issue (vol. 95, no. 2) containing the review has now been published. The .pdf is … Continue reading Book Review published in “Language”

I am happy to report that the book is now available, here or here. The article is in German. Look here for a draft and here for the final version.

September will be busy with talks at SIFA 2018 in Novara, at GAP.10 in Cologne, and at the next meeting of our research network on context-sensitivity in Berlin. I am also … Continue reading Back in Europe

The second part of my research project on logical pluralism has started. We arrived in Chapel Hill a couple of days ago and I am looking forward to work with Gillian Russell. We are still in the process of getting organized, but I can already say that I really like the place. As expected, it's … Continue reading Chapel Hill
