About me

My name is Michele Ginammi and I obtained my Ph.D. in Philosophy at the Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy). My general areas of interest include philosophy of mathematics, general philosophy of science, philosophy of physics, philosophy of logic, history of analytic philosophy, and metaphysics. Here you can find my complete CV.

In my spare time I also enjoy rock climbing, reading, chess, running, and photography (here you can find some of my shots).

[The] turkey found that, on his first morning at the turkey farm, he was fed at 9 a.m. However, being a good inductivist, he did not jump to conclusions. He waited until he had collected a large number of observations of the fact that he was fed at 9 a.m., and he made these observations under a wide variety of circumstances, on Wednesdays and Thursdays, on warm days and cold days, on rainy days and dry days. Each day, he added another observation statement to his list. Finally, his inductivist conscience was satisfied and he carried out an inductive inference to conclude, “I am always fed at 9 a.m.”. Alas, this conclusion was shown to be false in no uncertain manner when, on Christmas eve, instead of being fed, he had his throat cut. An inductive inference with true premises has led to a false conclusion. (A. Chalmers, What is This Things Called Science, University of Queensland Press, St. Lucia 1982; p. 14).
