Lina Lissia obtained a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Turin in 2020. Her dissertation The trouble with modus ponens. Some explorations on modus ponens and its failures investigates the role of modus ponens in various paradoxes, both epistemic and non-epistemic. Her main research topics are the Lottery Paradox, the Sorites Paradox (which she investigates mainly via the Lottery Paradox), and McGee’s so-called “counterexample to modus ponens”. She is interested, more generally, in all the attempts to provide counterexamples to modus ponens and modus tollens. Among her more recent research interests are Lewis-style Triviality results and semantic paradoxes. Since she got her PhD, she held a research position at the University of Turin.

Francesco Nappo is Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Mathematics at the Polytechnic University of Milan. He obtained his PhD at the University of North Carolina (US) in 2020. His area of specialization is the history and philosophy of science. Much of his current work consists in articulating a systematic account of analogical reasoning that exposes its central role in the production of scientific and mathematical knowledge. He is also interested in various topics at the intersection of climate science, environmental ethics, and political philosophy. In the past few years, he has been involved in several projects aiming to bring philosophy closer to the public. His outreach activities include organizing post-show discussions in theaters and offering classes in Ancient Greek philosophy for adult inmates in prison.
