This site presents my work in philosophy. It contains published articles, preprints , as well as books. Texts relate to analytic philosophy, semiotics and the study of concepts and cognition and philosophy psycho-pathological.

My works are mainly in analytic philosophy and consist of proposed solutions to some philosophical paradoxes : the Doomsday argument, Hempel’s paradox, Goodman ‘s paradox, the surprise examination paradox, the Sleeping Beauty problem, but also the Black-Leslie paradox of the spheres, etc.. A conceptual tool, the n-universes, which are useful for the study of philosophical problems is also presented.

There are also texts on semiotics and the study of concepts. These texts are based on a specific conceptual tool : the matrices of concepts. Recent applications to the dialectical plan, to  paradigm analysis of a corpus of proverbs , to the analysis of the love-hate indifference triplet of concepts are also presented.

Finally, several texts relate to cognition and cognitive distortions. Additions to the theory of cognitive distortions are exposed, and their applications in the field of psycho-pathological philosophy.

The work involves some fields that are apparently very different. However, all texts are underpinned by a particular philosophical doctrine , which can be defined as “dialectical contextualism”. And this doctrine has applications in analytical philosophy, semiotics and psycho-pathological philosophy. It is explained in more detail in my “Elements of dialectical contextualism“.
