Academia forces you to earn titles with dots and hyphens (B.A., M.A, Ph.D., Post-doc). Other sensible titles feature "visiting" and "fellow". I did my share of that. As a philosopher who turned (by chance and maybe mistake) to legal philosophy - yep, working with the lawyers! - I worked on different stuff. I started out working on surfaces (philosophy of perception) and then moved to social ontology. Here's where I developed my main insterests: constitutive rules and the logic of norms.


I studied metaphysics, (social) ontology and some teach yourself deontic logic. If you came for concepts and you are curious about my research, that’s the right section.



My most recent work now is on GitHub and Medium. You can find me on "research" social networks with older profiles.


From there, I start to find ways to inject these philosophical issues into more legal-philosophical friendly topics (spoiler: I failed :)). The first outcome was a book on impossibilities in the legal domain, born on the ashes of a lot of work on Ought Implies Can. Then, I worked on conflicts of norms. Issues on constitutive rules and social ontology kept reoccurring. During the research I stumbled upon international law and cryptocurrencies. They offered new conflicts and allowed me to breathe some different (fresher) air.


The early interests came back and I've found myself home having a theory of law focused on social ontology (the Artifact Theory of Law) and I realized there were a lot of things I didn't like in Legal philosophy's discussion of Legal propositions and artifacts. Nonetheless, cryptocurrencies led to a slightly different code from the one lawyers are used to. So it's time to learn how to program and think more about Digital Humanities.
