LUCA OLIVA

I am a tenure-track assistant professor and director of the Liberal Studies program (supervising about 300 students) at the University of Houston. In the last years, I was a visiting professor at the University of Bergamo in Italy (2015, 2022), a lecturer at the University of Vienna (2019) and the Institute Vienna Circle (2015, 2017), and an academic visitor at the University of Oxford (2016, 2017). My research interests lie in epistemology and philosophy of mathematics but also involve ethics. I work primarily on issues of analytic Kantianism. I also love sets and parthood relations.

My books analyze externalism and intuitionism (forthcoming) in Kant and beyond, and epistemic normativity (2006) and mathematical objectivity (2008) in Rickert (including his references). In the past, I also explored natural philosophy (2018/2020). Here is my CV.
