Salvatore Florio

Colleges, School and Institutes


Before joining Birmingham in 2016, I taught at Kansas State University (2011-2016) and was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Birkbeck, University of London, and at the University of Oslo (2010-2013).

Research interests

My current research focuses on philosophical issues concerning the nature of logic and the foundations of semantics. Together with Øystein Linnebo, I am writing a monograph on the logic and meaning of plurals, titled The Many and the One: A Philosophical Study (under contract with Oxford University Press). I am also working on projects about the entanglement of logic and mathematics, the role of mereology in linguistic semantics, and the paradox of Burali-Forti.

Willingness to take PhD students


PhD projects

I welcome opportunities to supervise or co-supervise research students in philosophy of language, logic, philosophy of logic, and philosophy of mathematics.
