Biography

Bachelor degree in Philosophy (2017) at Vita-Salute San Raffaele University (Milan) with a thesis about the nature of perceptive experience in the light of the existence of hallucinations and illusions, with Elisabetta Sacchi as supervisor. Afterwards, at the same University, Master degree in Philosophy of the Contemporary World (2019) with a thesis about the perception of inanimate objects’ expressive qualities, with Roberta De Monticelli e Francesca Forlè as supervisors. Main interests: Philosophy of Mind and Perception, Philosophy of Cognitive Science, Philosophy of Language, Epistemology, Philosophy of Cognitive and Clinical Psychology, Phenomenology, Philosophy of Art, Theatre and Expressiveness.

My PhD proposal aims at examining today’s debate about the nature of intentionality exploiting some reflections of philosophy of perception, specifically looking at the two main parties (tracking theories and phenomenal intentionality theories) through the lens of the error problem. This problem helps to spell out a common presupposition, which is able to underline their specular imperfections: in fact, tracking perspectives seems to capture only the objective constituent of the experiential relation, while phenomenal intentionality perspectives only the subjective one. Thus, we can ask if it is possible and desirable to look for a midway between them able to conserve their essential intuitions overcoming their respective flaws; in this respect, I think it is interesting to engage in dialogue with the phenomenological gestaltic and husserlian tradition.
