Yannis Stephanou studied philosophy at the University of Athens and got a Ph.D. from King’s College London. Before coming back to Athens, he worked successively as a lecturer at King’s College London (Department of Philosophy), as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow and as a lecturer at the University of Cambridge (Faculty of Philosophy). He has taught philosophy of language, formal logic, philosophy of logic, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, epistemology, ancient philosophy and modern philosophy. His background involved a substantial component in classics. He has carried out research in modal logic and the metaphysics of modality, as well as in philosophy of language. In recent years, his research has focused on constructing formal theories of truth which deal with the semantic paradoxes by relying on a non-classical logic. He has published papers in Acta Analytica, Analysis, Deucalion (in Greek), Dialectica, Journal of Philosophical Logic, Logic and Logical Philosophy, Notre Dame Journal of Formal Logic, Philosophical Review, Ratio and Synthese.
