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, a Carnegie-designated Tier One institution. I teach theories of knowledge and truth, and ethics. In the last years, I was a lecturer at the University of Vienna (2019) and the Institute Vienna Circle (2015, 2017), an academic visitor at the University of Oxford (2016, 2017), and a visiting professor at the Universities of Bergamo (2015, 2022) and Insubria (2024) in Italy.

My research interests lie in epistemology and philosophy of mathematics but also involve ethics and metaethics. I especially published on intuition and cognition in Kant, abstract objects and normativity in Rickert, and natural philosophy. Here is my CV.

In 2023, I launched the Ethics and Normativity Seminar Series at the University of Houston, which I now lead with Luis Oliveira and Robert Tierney.

One of my recent talks on Kant and the Destiny of Metaphysics is available on YouTube.
