Francesco Bottin

I was a researcher and associate professor of History of Philosophy at the University of Padua, so I won the chair of the History of Medieval philosophy at the University of Bari, Faculty of Arts, where I taught for three years. I have given courses also teach at the University of Verona and Venice. Then I got transferred from the University of Padua, where I teach now.

I covered the following administrative positions at the University of Padua:

* Director of the Institute of History of Philosophy from 1 November 1990 to 31 October 1996
* Director of the Center for Research in Philosophy Medieval dall'aa 90-91 today,
* Head of Co-Editor and currently the magazine "Middle Ages"
* President of the Philosophical Society, Section Veneta, from May 1995 to June 1998.

I am responsible by 1984 for a local unit of the former 40% research on medieval science.

I took care of logic and scientific method in the Middle Ages and humanities, with particular reference to antinomie semantic, doctrines semiotiche, many doctrines logical and nominalism. My interest in the philosophy of the Middle Ages is guided by the conviction that many doctrines and semantic medieval logic can be of great help in solving the problems philosophical contemporaries.
