I graduated in Philosophy at the University of Milan, Italy, and received my PhD in Philosophy of Mind at Rutgers, N.J.. I have been a member of the Laboratoire de Sciences Cognitives et Psycholinguistique, Paris, where I learned the little experimental psychology I know of, thanks to the help of friends and colleagues. I then entered the University of Paris 8, France as an associate professor. I moved to Italy at SISSA, Trieste, then to the University of Nantes, France, as a full professor, and finally to Barcelona, at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, as an ICREA professor. I have also been visiting professor at the University of Budapest, Hungary, at the University of the Balearic Islands, Spain, and at New York University.
