MATHEUS VALENTE – Homepage
I’m a Margarita Salas Postdoctoral Fellow at the universities of Valencia and Barcelona, I’m a member of both the Valencia Philosophy Lab and of LOGOS. Previously, I was a FAPESP Postdoctoral Fellow at UNICAMP/CLE, in Brazil. I obtained my PhD from the University of Barcelona/LOGOS Research Group in June 2020. I have always been interested in issues at the intersection of the philosophy of language and mind. Among other things, I have written about indexical concepts, communication, Frege’s Puzzle, the shareability of thoughts and iconicity/diagrams. Recently, I have been thinking about whether self-locating thought (‘I’, ‘now’, ‘here’, ‘this’) is exceptional in any substantial sense. I’m particularly interested in developing Gareth Evans’ idea that self-locating thought is dynamic, and to contrast it with the widely more popular theories advanced by David Lewis (centered-worlds) and John Perry (two-factor belief states).
