Dr. Florian Steinberger
Florian Steinberger studied philosophy and mathematical logic at the University of Paris 1, Sorbonne-Pantheon. At the University of Cambridge, he earned an MPhil in philosophy and later, in 2009, his Ph.D. entitled "Harmony and Logical Inferentialism" under the supervision of Michael Potter. From 2008-2011, he held a Junior Research Fellowship and served as Director of Studies at Queens’ College also at the University of Cambridge. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor to the Chair of Logic and Philosophy of Language and at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy at the LMU. From May 2015, he will be a lecturer at Birkbeck College, University of London.
As Junior Researcher in Residence, Florian Steinberger will be working on his habilitation on the topic of the normativity of logic. The project is concerned with the question as to whether the laws of logic can be said to have normative authority over us and if so, in what sense they can be said to be authoritative.
