Federico Boccaccini is currently Visiting Professor (2018-2020) of History of Modern Philosophy and History of Science (HPS) at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Brasilia and Honorary Research Fellow (collaborateur scientifique) appointed by the Department of Philosophy of the University of Liege (Belgium). He was Postdoctoral Researcher (2014-2017) at the Belgian National Fund for Scientific Research (F.R.S.-FNRS). He joined the Department in Liege in 2011 as a Postdoctoral Researcher (2011-2013) and then as a Research Fellow associated to the "Brentano School Project" directed by A. Dewalque (2013-2014) after his Ph.D. at Sorbonne - Paris1 (in cotutelle PhD programme with University of Pisa; BA in Philosophy at La Sapienza, Rome; MA in Philosophy and Social Sciences, Sorbonne Paris1). He was Academic Visitor for the Trinity Term 2013 to the Power Structuralism in Ancient Ontologies Project (ERC) directed by A. Marmodoro, Corpus Christi College, University of Oxford. Much of his work has focused on the legacy and impact of early modern philosophy of science and mind on the 19th and 20th-century philosophy with a particular attention to the connection between Franz Brentano and the 19th century philosophy, early phenomenology and analytic philosophy, as well as the late modern metaphysics, ontology, and logic (esp. Aristotelian tradition). His research interests in philosophy are primarily in ontology of mind, self-knowledge, intentionality, philosophy of science and theory of knowledge, and mental agency. He is getting started with studying moral psychology. He received a grant support from F.R.S.- FNRS for his project ACME (2014-2017) on the history and logic of mental acts. He also collaborator in the inter-university project "Lexpérience des états mentaux/ the experience of mental states" between the University of Liege and the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) financed by the FNRS and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). His main present project is a monograph on Brentano and modern philosophy of mind and a second book, written in collaboration with M. Antonelli, on Brentano for the major series in Italy of introductions to the great Western philosophers (Pensatori, Carocci). He is seriously considering writing a third book about the making of empirical psychology in the modern European context (1538-1879). He founded an interdisciplinary group on the philosophy of history, supported by FNRS, in order to exchange ideas among scholars about methodology and epistemology of writing history of Western thought (including history of science and intellectual history) displayed in particular on the topics of truth and narrativity, epistemic value of history, historical knowledge and epistemology of history of philosophy.
