Florian Steinberger was educated at the University of Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne where he took a Maîtrise in philosophy and in mathematical logic. He then crossed the Channel to pursue graduate work at the University of Cambridge where he took an MPhil and a PhD. From 2008 to 2011, he held a Junior Research Fellowship at Queens’ College, University of Cambridge, where he was also Director of Studies in philosophy. From 2011 until 2015, Florian was fortunate enough to be Assistant Professor in Logic and Philosophy of Language at the LMU and the MCMP. During this time he spent the Spring 2012 as a Visiting Scholar at the Department of Philosophy and Patrick Suppes Center for History and Philosophy of Science, Stanford University. In the summer semester 2014, Florian was Junior Researcher in Residence at the Center of Advanced Studies, LMU. Currently, he is a member of the Department of Philosophy at Birkbeck College, University of London and continues to be an external member of the MCMP.
Florian's main research interests lie at the intersection of (formal) epistemology and philosophy of logic (in particular, the normative role of logic and its relation to other epistemic norms), as well with the philosophy of language. He also maintains an active interest in the philosophy of mathematics (logicism, intuitionism), metaphysics (realism/anti-realism), Frege and (increasingly) Carnap with occasional forays into the philosophy of religion.
