Dr. Tomás Cano

JQYA Fellow 2020

Sabbatical Fellowship Award

Research area: Social Sciences

Research focus: His project investigates family polarization and its relation with the diverging skill developments of children in Germany. Children in families from the lower-class are facing higher prevalence of critical life events. In addition, once they suffer these events, they also have more negative consequences. On the contrary, children from the upper-class have less prevalence of critical life events and their penalties are smaller. One key reason behind differences in prevalence and penalties are parental compensations: upper-class families follow strategies to protect and invest in their children. But what exactly families do to make a difference in their level of resilience is a black box. This project aims to uncover this black box, studying how parenting strategies of compensation vary by social class, and how they affect child development.

Project

I study normativity and normative phenomena with formal methods coming from mathematics, decision and game theory, and philosophy.
My research interests are in logic (esp. deontic and modal, algebraic semantics), metaphysics (hyperintensionality, supervenience), metaethics (reasons) and philosophy of law (responsibility). My current research is on a hyperintensional theory of normative phenomena, on identity and indiscernibility in higher-order languages, and on the scale of moral adjectives.
