Biographical note and Research Interests

Ricardo Barroso Batista graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy of the Portuguese Catholic University in 2011, receiving the Santo Inácio de Loyola Prize (Portuguese Catholic University) in 2012, for having completed the bachelor degree with the highest mark average. He is writing a doctoral thesis on the Principle of Sufficient Reason as a point of intersection between the Metaphysical Grounding and the Cosmological Argument in the Philosophy of Religion. In his research, he analyzes the principles of ontological dependence and causality and the adjacent concepts of contingency and necessity, in the framework of metaphysical foundationalism, relating them to contemporary cosmological argumentation.
