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.
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.
