Short bio:

I defended my PhD thesis about rule-following and semantic non-factualism in 2010. I started working as a full-time assistant professor/lecturer at the Department of Philosophy of Jagiellonian Univeristy in 2013. My main research interests from that moment focused on foundational issues in philosophy of language and on metaphysics of mind (especially the status of propositional attitudes). Currently, I have also developed interest in social ontology. From 2018 I am a member of Jagiellonian Centre for Law, Language and Philosophy.

Research interests:

  • Philosophy of mind: propositional attitudes, realism in philosophy of mind, status of folk psychology
  • Philosophy of language: metasemantics, normativitiy of meaning
  • Social ontology: social kinds, institutional entities, group minds
