Further Information

Andreas Kapsner studied logic, philosophy of science and indology at the LMU, where he received a Masters degree in 2006. He received another Masters degree in cognitive science from the University of Barcelona in 2007. In 2011, he received his PhD, again from the University of Barcelona; during this time, he was member of the LOGOS research group. His thesis on non-classical logic and constructive semantics was supervised by Genoveva Marti, Sven Rosenkranz and Heinrich Wansing, and the viva committee consisted of Hannes Leitgeb, José Martínez and Graham Priest. From 2011 to 2012 he was a visiting fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy, left for a year to take up a post-doc position at the University of Passau to work on philosophical conceptions of privacy and returned to the MCMP in 2013 to lead a research project entitled "New Logics for Verificationism" (funded by the DFG), which ended in 2016. After working in the psychology department of the LMU on an interdisciplinary project on behavior change, Andreas has from 2018 to 2019 been working as a postdoctoral fellow at the MCMP on his project "Counterfactuals and the Burden of Proof". Since 2020, Andreas is leading the research project "The Philosophical Basis of Connexive Logic", funded by the DFG.

Research Interests:

Andreas Kapsner is mainly working on the philosophy of logic, non-classical logics, the philosophy of language, cognitive science and political philosophy. Furthermore, he has a strong interest in the analytical aspects of Buddhist and other Asian philosophies, as well as legal philosophy.


In 2012, FoLLI ( awarded Kapsner the Beth Dissertation Prize for the best thesis in the fields of logic, language and information defended in 2011 (ex aequo with Dan Licata, University of Pittsburgh).
