Luís Duarte d'Almeida

Luís Duarte d’Almeida was educated at Lisbon and at the University of Oxford. His main research areas are jurisprudence and the philosophical foundations of criminal law, but he is also interested in philosophical aspects of discrimination and in European Union Law. His DPhil thesis developed a proof‑based account of defeasible decision making in both the general field of judicial verdicts and the particular domain of accusations and liability ascriptions. Though still interested in defences and defeaters, Luís is currently engaged in a research project in general jurisprudence on the several puzzles and problems surrounding the notion of a (truth-apt) statement of law. Recent publications include: ‘Legal Statements and Normative Language’, Law and Philosophy (2011) 30: 167-199; ‘Positive Law and the “Cognitivity Thesis”,’ German Law Journal (2011) 12: 811-826; ‘Deberes Jurídicos, Teoría del Derecho y Dogmática Penal’, Discusiones (2010) 9: 85-110; ‘Separation, But Not of Rules’, in Criminal Law Conversations, (P Robinson et al, eds), Oxford: OUP (2009).

Gonçalo Santos was previously a graduate student at the University of Barcelona, where he wrote a dissertation on the topic of absolute generality under the supervision of José Martínez. In his dissertation he defended an intuitionistic version of generality relativism. The main features of this view are its account of unrestricted quantification and the reply it offers to the the threat of incoherence that undermines different relativist positions.
