of Research: Logic | Language | Epistemology |
I am a Senior Researcher at CNRS, based at Institut Jean-Nicod in Paris and a Professor in the Philosophy Department at ENS.
My research deals with
logic, language, epistemology, and cognitive science. Much of my
work concerns vagueness in language and in perception. I am
particularly interested in the issue of concept representation,
and in the relation between vagueness and perceptual ambiguity.
In the area of logic, my interest has grown over the years for
nonclassical logics, in particular for foundations and applications
of trivalence (to vagueness, logical consequence, conditionals).
At IJN I coordinate the team Concepts, Logic and Reasoning.
I am involved in two
new projects (starting October 2019), both funded by the Agence
Nationale de la Recherche. One concerns Access to Ambiguity in
Perception (AMBISENSE), an interdisciplinary project with Daniel
de Gardelle. Another concerns Probabilistic Semantics for
Language (PROBASEM), with my colleague Benjamin
Barrio, we are editing a special issue of the Journal
of Philosophical Logic on Substructural
Logics and Metainferences (click to see Call for
From 2014 to 2018, with Benjamin Spector I co-directed the ANR program "Trivalence and Natural Language Meaning". Between 2008 and 2011 I conducted an ANR funded project on the topic "Cognitive Origins of Vagueness", which I have continued as part of F. Récanati's program CPR. I am currently the Editor-in-Chief of the Review of Philosophy and Psychology (RPP), a peer -reviewed journal edited quarterly at Institut Jean-Nicod and published by Springer. I am also a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Philosophical Logic and of Disputatio. In 2016 I was a Visiting Fellow of the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study.
