ANTONUTTI MARFORI Marianna
Postdoctoral Fellow, IHPST
My main research interests lie in the philosophy of mathematics. I obtained my PhD in June 2013 from the University of Bristol, working under the supervision of Leon Horsten and Hannes Leitgeb (LMU Munich) on theories of informal or absolute provability. During the last academic year, I was a lecturer in philosophy at the School of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy at Keele University, and a DAAD postdoctoral fellow at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (May-June 2014). Previously, I studied at the University of Rome La Sapienza and at the University of Cambridge and St. John's College, and I visited the Department of Philosophy of the University of Lund (Oct. 2012).
My research focuses on philosophical issues concerning truth and provability in mathematics, and the nature of mathematical knowledge and justification. My doctoral thesis investigated the notion of 'informal' or 'absolute' provability in mathematics, i.e. provability which is not relative to any given formal system. Currently, I am working on the notion of implicit commitment for arithmetical theories and on the notion of rigour in mathematical practice.
