I'm currently doing a 3-year PhD project, studying medieval theories of consequence. In particular, my research mainly concerns one criterion that is used to determine whether a consequence is good or not: the containment criterion. According to this criterion, a consequence is said to be good or valid when the antecedent somehow contains the consequent. The main purpose of my research is to compose a genealogy of this notion of containment. I have already looked into the roots of this criterion in Boethius and Abelard. Currently I'm working on thirteenth century uses of the criterion, and soon I'll turn to the Oxfordians of the fourteenth century.
I also really like paleography.
