Dr Andreoletti

The CPT is pleased and proud to announce that our PhD student, Giacomo Andreoletti, has recently passed his PhD defence. Giacomo’s dissertation, titled ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger. Freedom, Fatalism and the Future’, was supervised by Giuliano Torrengo (Milan) and Achille Varzi (Columbia), and examined by Ned Markosian (UMass Amherst), with Andrea Iacona (Torino) and Stephan Torre (Aberdeen) as external readers. Giacomo’s dissertation on the metaphysics of time and fatalism passed with flying colours. But, then again, it was always fated to be so. Many congratulations, Dr Andreoletti!
