Overview


I am a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the School of Humanities and Social Inquiry. I specialize in Philosophy of Mind and  Social Ontology . I am currently engaged in several collaborative international projects on Collective Intentionality, the Second-Person, Normativity and the role played by culture in human evolution.

Research Overview


  • My current research focuses on questions concerning the evolution of human-specific cognitive capacities within a naturalistic framework. My main hypothesis is that culture plays a key role in explaining such evolution, in particular  that engagement in socio-cultural normative practices, provides the background for understanding how complex cognitive capacities emerged in natural history. An associated hypothesis is that several forms of sociality and joint action are possible without entertaining mental representations of the mental states of partners in interaction. Classifying and distinguishing different forms of collective engagement and social interaction  along several dimensions of complexity is a central task of this project.
