Department of Philosophy - Epistemology Section
Short CV : I graduated in Mathematics at the University of Genoa (1968) and I have written my dissertation in set theory under the direction of the prof. Evandro Agazzi. I worked as Professor of Institutions of Mathematics at the University of Genoa from 1971 to 1983, and then, since 1983 I have become Professor of Mathematical Logic at the same University.
My main research areas are in History, Philosophy, Didactics of Logic
and Mathematics. Recent publications include a book on Algebra (1995),
a second one on Fondations and Philosophy of Mathematics in the twentieth
century (1997, together with Marco Borga), another one on Non-Euclidean
Geometries (1998, together with Evandro Agazzi), two manuals on Logic (2002,
2004) and a book on the Theory of Computation (2004, with Marcelo Frixione).
I am on the editorial board of Epistemologia, an Italian Journal for the
Philosophy of Science.
