Gandolfo VERGOTTINI (Tutor: Prof. Antonio Ledda)


In 2016, I graduated in Philosophy at the University of Cagliari. My thesis was about Socrate with a special focus on several feature of his personality. I worked on this project under the supervision of Professor Elisabetta Cattanei. In 2020, I achieved a master’s degree in Philosophy and Theories of Communication discussing a dissertation on the issues related to the infinity in mathematics, focusing on the axiom of choice. Professor Antonio Ledda was my supervisor.  Now I’m a Phd student at the University of Cagliari. Investigating a connection between substructural and quantum logics is the main goal of my project: this path has started from the study of a specific algebraic structure, the left-residuated l-groupoids. My main interests are in the field of the algebraic logic and the universal algebra.





Cristiano VIDALI (Tutor: Prof. Pierpaolo Ciccarelli)

Cristiano VIDALI

I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the University of Milan, discussing a dissertation on Jean-Paul Sartre’s ontology, being supervised by Professor Andrea Zhok. I then obtained a Master’s degree from “Vita-Salute” San Raffaele University, where I worked under the supervision of Massimo Cacciari on Alexandre Kojève’s thought, suggesting an original interpretation of the idea of the “end of history” by relating it to the concepts of tradition and social acceleration. My main interests focus on one hand on philosophy of history, especially Hegelianism and its Marxist heritage, and on the other hand on phenomenology and existentialism (Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, Merleau-Ponty). I am currently a PhD student in “Philosophy, Epistemology, Human Sciences” at University of Cagliari, pursuing a research project on the relationship between phenomenology and cognitive sciences, with a particular reference to psychology of attention.

André MURGIA (Tutor: Prof.ssa Angela Taraborrelli)


I graduated in philosophy in 2017,  under the supervision of Professor Annamaria Loche, discussing a dissertation on the concept of constituent power in the Prince of Machiavelli. I obtained my master’s degree in philosophy and theory of communication, again at the University of Cagliari, in 2020. Under the supervision of Professor Angela Taraborrelli, I tackled the problem of the public sphere as it is presented during the intellectual path of Habermas, trying to discuss the normative value of this concept, also in light of the processes of globalization.

I am currently a PhD student at the University of Cagliari, where I am carrying out a research project on the theories of democracy and democratization, my main interests.
