Over the past decade, the University of Milan has developed expertise and produced high-level research across philosophy, logic and cognitive science. Since innovative research requires the integration of interdisciplinary skills, this new PhD programme will offer training in analytical philosophy and epistemology combined with theoretical reflection and experimental practice.
