Eugenio Orlandelli


PhD in Science, Cognition and Technology, University of Bologna (2010-2014).


Office address:
CIS – Department of Philosophy and Communication
University of Bologna
Via Zamboni 38
40126 Bologna


Master Degree in Philosophy, University of Bologna, 2010.


Research: Logic, philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, epistemology, semantics.

Thesis research: In my PhD project I try to present a first-order epistemic logic based on a so-called “indexed modal language” that avoids some of the expressive limitations of standard modal languages. By means of this language I will try to develop a formal system that is able to express, among other things, the difference between knowing that and knowing who, and I will try to develop a first-order logic for common knowledge.
