I am an Associate Professor (Maître de conférences HDR) at the Philosophy Department of Paris Nanterre University (Université Paris Nanterre).
My work pertains to philosophy of mathematics, logic and philosophy of language (all broadly construed and combined together).
My PhD dissertation was about the general problem of the connection established (since Kant onward) between universality and necessity. It challenged that connection and worked toward analyzing both concepts independently of each other.
My HDR dissertation endeavors to extend to context-sensitivity the Russellian correspondence between the logical articulation of ordinary language and fundamental mathematical notions. Context-sensitivity is the fact that the semantic content of what is uttered generally depends on the context of utterance. My dissertation claims that context-sensitivity does not sound the death knell of Russell’s correspondence but constitutes a reason to deepen it.
I also have done work about Kantian themes and about early analytic philosophy (Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, Carnap).
Finally, I have been interested in possible applications, in logic, of parts of traditional mathematics (differential geometry, homotopy theory, descent theory) which have hitherto received little attention within logic.
