Luca Oliva, Ph.D.

I am an instructional assistant professor (since 2014) of the Liberal Studies program at the University of Houston, a Carnegie-designated Tier-One public research university. I specialize in epistemology and philosophy of mathematics; I am also interested in meta-ethics. I have published on number theories in philosophy, Kantian intuitionism and normativity. My papers have appeared in the Kantian ReviewRethinking Kant (NAKS Series), and in collections of Cambridge University Press, and De Gruyter Publishers. I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in cognitive science, logic, and ethics, among others. In the last years, I was an academic visitor at the University of Oxford (Trinity Term 2016, 2017), a visiting professor of the Institute Vienna Circle at the University of Vienna (summer term 2015, 2017) and a visiting professor at the University of Bergamo in Italy (summer term 2015).
