Research Focus

I am primarily concerned with the relations between contemporary and medieval philosophy, as well as the bringing of both into actualization. My focus is on contemporary semiotic logic and the early-modern doctrines of signs, chiefly those of the Coimbra school. The authors I favor are John Deely and Charles S. Peirce, on the one hand, and on the other hand Sebastião do Couto and João Poinsot. It is also my mission to facilitate networking among those in the scientific community with an active interest in the ethics and politics of care.
