Lines of research

My researches have been developed in four areas: (1) the medieval reception of Aristotelian logic and metaphysics, with a particular focus on medieval semantics and formal ontology; (2) the philosophy of mind and intentionality in the Middle Ages, and their relations with modern and contemporary theories; (3) the late-medieval anthropological doctrines, with particular attention to the Mind / Body Problem and to bioethical issues concerning the beginning and end of human life; (4) the history of the Italian medieval philosophy and of that of the Dominican Order in particular.
