‚ÄúEpistemology curriculum‚ÄĚ is our shorthand for the curriculum in Language, Mind, Science,¬†and Cognition. Here you may find the list of teaching activities, lectures and seminars that are mandatory for the first year (but open to every PhD student).¬†In the second year you should follow (I) and (IV). If abroad¬†you should follow a similar course at your host university.
In addition, you may follow Graduate Level Classes either in Genoa or in Turin. Graduate Level Classes may be found on the University Sites. Graduate Level Classes in Logic will be provided in Turin and in Genoa (teachers: Andrea Iacona in Turin, Marcello Frixione and Massimiliano Vignolo in Genoa). [this is not mandatory; it may help students to fill some gaps in their knowledge; in 2019 Andrea Iacona will give a series of lectures in logic specifically for PhD Students].

¬†After the list of mandatory teaching,¬† you may also find a selection of events of interest you are strongly invited to attend – –¬†See also Archive 2013-2016.
