About us

The research centre Noumenon promotes and accomodates meta-disciplinary researches on phenomenological, epistemological, and metaphysical aspects of mind, human nature, and social practices and norms. In particular, Noumenon is devoted to investigating:

- the different meanings of naturalism, the corresponding conceptualizations and modeling of nature, as well as the consequences of the latter from a social, ethical, and legal point of view;

- the relationship between intentionality, consciousness, and self-consciousness;

- the social, normative, and legal questions concerning neuro-technologies and personal identity;

- the use of complextity science, and of logical and mathematical formalizations for the modelling of theoretical and practical rationality;

- the systemic representations of anthropic actions in the environment, and of their economic impact.
