  1. Logical Pluralism is Compatible with Monism About Metaphysical Modality.Nicola Ciprotti & Luca Moretti - 2009 - Australasian Journal of Philosophy 87 (2):275-284.
    Beall and Restall 2000; 2001; 2006 advocate a comprehensive pluralist approach to logic, which they call Logical Pluralism, according to which there is not one true logic but many equally acceptable logical systems. They maintain that Logical Pluralism is compatible with monism about metaphysical modality, according to which there is just one correct logic of metaphysical modality. Wyatt 2004 contends that Logical Pluralism is incompatible with monism about metaphysical modality. We first suggest that if Wyatt were right, Logical Pluralism would (...)

  2. A Puzzle About Restricted Recombination in Modal Realism.Nicola Ciprotti - 2006 - In Paolo Valore (ed.), Topics on General and Formal Ontology. Polimetrica. pp. 281.
    This paper addresses a specific issue inherent to David Lewis’s conception of possible worlds, namely whether or not they are liable to being limited in size. The paper purports to show that, if a certain argument against unlimited worlds’ size is valid, then the way of countering it by means of positing an upper limit to size (as Lewis himself and John Divers have suggested) leads to a troublesome distortion of some modal phenomena, such as de re ascriptions of properties. (...)

  3. Metaphysical Fatalism, in Five Steps.Nicola Ciprotti - 2012 - Grazer Philosophische Studien 86 (1):35-54.
    The paper presents an argument for the conclusion that a certain conception of truth, according to which truth is timeless, truth-values are just two and the primary truth-bearers are propositions, leads to a kind of inevitabilism here labelled Metaphysical Fatalism. After the presentation of the argument for Metaphysical Fatalism, three objections to it are discussed and rebutted.

    Alethic Determinism. Or: How to Make Free Will Inconsistent with Timeless Truth.Nicola Ciprotti & Tommaso Piazza - 2013 - Logique and Analyse 56 (221):85-99.
    The paper purports to show that truth-atemporalism, the thesis that truth is timeless, is incompatible with power to do otherwise. Since a parallel and simpler argument can be run to the effect that truth-omnitemporalism, the thesis that truth is sempiternal, is incompatible with power to do otherwise, our conclusion achieves greater generality, and the possible shift from the claim that truth is omnitemporal to the claim that it is atemporal becomes useless for the purpose to resist it. On the other (...)

    Introduzione: perché i mondi possibili?Andrea Borghini & Nicola Ciprotti - 2007 - Annali Del Dipartimento di Filosofia di Firenze 12:173-180.
    Il problema di fondo da cui la discussione sui mondi possibili scaturisce è quello di fornire una teoria circa l’interpretazione delle espressioni modali. È quindi da un’analisi di queste espressioni che partiremo per la nostra discussione sui mondi possibili. Nel linguaggio naturale il discorso modale è segnalato da una molteplicità di espressioni come avverbi, modi verbali ed operatori enunciativi: 'potere', 'dovere', 'avere la capacità', 'avere l’opportunità', 'possibilmente', 'doverosamente', et coetera. In seguito ad una semplificazione non priva di conseguenze, si è (...)

    On Modal Meinongianism.Nicola Ciprotti - 2014 - In Marian David & Mauro Antonelli (eds.), Logical, Ontological, and Historical Contributions on the Philosophy of Alexius Meinong. De Gruyter. pp. 1-36.
    The paper has a two-fold objective; firstly, scrutinising neo-Meinongianism as recently championed by Francesco Berto. Secondly, trying and arguing that the dispute between Meinongianism and (various kinkds of) Actualism is hardly cutting some relevant ice.

    Theological Compatibilism and Essential Properties.Nicola Ciprotti - 2008 - Nordicum-Mediterraneum 3 (1).
    Alvin Plantinga defends Theological Compatibilism (TC) and Essential- ism about property possession (E). TC is the claim that human freedom to act otherwise and God’s essential omniscience are compatible, while E is the claim that every individual entity whatsoever has a modal profile consisting in having both essential and accidental properties. I purport to show that, if E is assumed in the argument for TC, then the latter leads to a very puzzling upshot. I also intend to show that, even (...)

    Minimising Existence: Or How to Stop Worrying and Love the Barcan Formulae.Nicola Ciprotti - 2006 - Annali Del Dipartimento di Filosofia 12:215-238.
    The paper is intended to provide a full-scale defence of the infamous Barcan Formulae. Not only do I put forth some arguments, both semantic and metaphysical, against recent criticism; I also take pains at supplying some rationale in favour of the formal semantics underlying the Formulae, namely Possibilist quantification. Such a task is carried out through an argument for Compositional Nihilism, according to which nothing but mereological simples ever exists, and consequently through an informal sketch of the metaphysics of possible (...)

    L’ifs And Cans Di Austin: alcune osservazioni sulla forma logica.Nicola Ciprotti - 2002 - Annali Del Dipartimento di Filosofia 8:77-87.
    In the free will-problem a lively debate over the correctness of interpretino “An agent could have acted otherwise” as “An agent would have acted otherwise, if she had chosen or decide or tried to” took place within the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies, especially as a result of John Austin’s paper Ifs and Cans , directed mainly against the conditional analysis of could first advanced by George Moore in his Ethics . What I aim to show is that the Austinian attack (...)

  13. Compatibilismo, compatibilismi.Nicola Ciprotti - 2003 - Politeia 71:17-36.
    The paper discusses and refines one main version of compatibilism, namely, George Moore's. Though not concerned with, and not interested in, supporting an argument overall for the compatibility of determinism and free will, the paper intends to shape an interpretation of moral responsibility, built upon the refinement of a loosely Moorean notion of free will, which is fine-grained enough in order to account for some relevant moral phenomena and practices.
