Antonio Freiles

I am currently a second-year PhD Student in Philosophy at Syracuse University. Before completing my BA (2020) and MA (2022) in Philosophy at the University of Italian Switzerland, I grew up in Gaeta, Italy. My full CV is here.

I focus on metaphysics and the philosophy of language. In metaphysics, I am interested in ontological dependence, grounding, modality, and properties. In the philosophy of language, my interest concerns linguistic vagueness, the nature of propositions, and subject matter. I am also particularly fascinated by understanding whether the social identities of a speaker influence the content of an utterance. Finally, I have a project at the intersection of metaphysics and the philosophy of language that concerns the application of truthmaker semantics in both disciplines.
