Corpina Fabio


  Short Biography

I was born in Sicily (1985), at the foot of Nebrodi Mountains and opposite the Aeolian Islands.

I am graduated in Philosophy and History of Ideas at the University of Palermo (2011). I received my Ph.D in History, Philosophy and Didactics of Science from University of Cagliari (2017), under the supervision of Francesco Paoli. Time, tenses and modalities. Diodorus’  kurieuon, Prior’s Master Argument and his heritage is the title of my thesis. I visited the Université de Genève under Paolo Crivelli (2013), and the Aalborg University under Peter Øhrstrøm (2014, 2017). I am following the Virtual Lab for A. Prior Studies, a joint project between the University of Copenhagen and the Aalborg University. Moreover, I am interested in didactics and I am teaching history and philosophy at high school (liceo classico Siotto – Cagliari).
