Dr. Filippo Ferrari
Filippo Ferrari is currently a Research Fellow at the Institute of Philosophy, University of Bonn, working within the remit of the DFG project “Disagreement in Philosophy”.
His research focuses primarily on two clusters of topics: (i) the normative aspects of enquiry, with a special emphasis on disagreement and retraction, and (ii) the debate about the nature of truth, particularly with respect to deflationism, relativism and pluralism.
Ferrari has recently completed his PhD thesis at the University of Aberdeen on the topic of the normativity of truth and disagreement, under the supervision of Crispin Wright and Carrie Ichikawa Jenkins.
