Further Information

Giorgio obtained his PhD in Philosophy and MA in Linguistics from the Ohio State University in 2019. During his graduate studies he had research visits at the University of Oslo and the University of St. Andrews. From 2019 to 2023 he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the ILLC and Philosophy Department, University of Amsterdam, on the project EXPRESS. In 2023 he joined the MCMP as an MSCA postdoctoral researcher on the project EvoLogic.

Research interests

Giorgio's research is mainly in logic and philosophy of language. His current project EvoLogic is about the evolution of logic: how did we develop languages that contain logical operators? Why these operators and not others? The goal is to understand the origins of the human capacity for logical reasoning. Merging philosophical logic and evolutionary linguistics, the general hypothesis is that logic evolved to support social interactions and efficient communication. The particular focus will be on the evolution of quantificational reasoning, which is key to the ability to generalize and to count.
