His scientific research interests to the study of the relationship between classic, realistic, theory of intentionality and the informational approach to cognitive functions. These interests have been developed along two main directions: 1. Study of particular computational architectures such as “neural networks”, both as models of complex, non-linear dynamic systems (chaotic, unstable, non-stationary), and as plausible models of the physical (neurophysiologic) and informational (computational) basis of intentional behavior in humans and animals. 2. Study of the foundational problems of logic, mathematics and computability theory in relationship with several problems of the semantics of intentionality, such as the relation between extensional and intensional logic, the problem of reference, of analogy, etc.Strictly related to his scientific interests is the philosophical research  developed along two main directions: 1. The mind-body problem and its dual (neither dualistic, nor monistic) solution, typical of the Aristotelian as well as of the cognitive science approaches to it.; 2. A rigorous new proposal of the dual Aristotelian and Thomistic theory of the spiritual component of the human mind, formalized through the powerful means actually offered by the so-called “formal ontology”. This discipline – as logical symbolization of the metaphysical discourse - offers indeed a rigorous approach to the study of the relationship between the mathematical (extensional) language of modern science and the content-related (intensional) language of the ordinary language, typical of philosophy and of other humanistic disciplines (ontology, ethics, philosophy of law, etc.). He is an author of ten books and several dozen philosophical articles.
