    Manzano, Maria

    I was born in Archidona (Málaga) in 1950, I am a Full Professor (Catedrática de Universidad) of Logic and Philosophy of Science at the University of Salamanca since 2002. Previously, I was a Professor (Profesora Titular) at the University of Barcelona (1984-1995) and in Salamanca (1995-2002). I studied Philosophy at the University of Barcelona and, thanks to “Plan Maluquer”, I was able to design my own curriculum focused on Logic, Mathematics and Linguistics to obtained my degree in Philosophy in 1974. I began my teaching and research career at the same university and received a Research Grant from the Juan March Foundation (1975-1976) while writing my doctoral thesis, General Models for Second Order Logic (1977), under the direction of Jesús Mosterín. With a Fulbright Senior scholarship (1977-1978), I enhanced my knowledge on these subjects at the University of California, (at Berkeley, USA), within the Group in Logic and the Methodology of Science, founded in 1957 by Alfred Tarski and Leon Henkin. Henkin was my mentor, and since then his friendship and teachings have guided my teaching and research career.
