Dr. Filippo Ferrari

Filippo Ferrari 

I am a Research Fellow at the Institute of Philosophy, University of Bonn, working in the remit of the DFG project "Disagreement in Philosophy".

I'm currently researching three topics (and their interconnections): (i) foundational issues on disagreement; (Ii) deflationism and pluralism about truth; (Ii) the normativity of belief and reasoning.

I was awarded my Ph.D. By the University of Aberdeen in November 2014 with the thesis 'Disagreement and the Normativity of Truth under Cognitive Command' (Supervised by Crispin Wright and Carrie Ichikawa Jenkins).
