    Luca F. Tuninetti is Full Professor of Epistemology at the Pontificia Università Urbaniana in Rome, which is the continuation of the College where Newman stayed between 1846 and 1847. Prof. Tuninetti has published the books “Per se notum”: Die logische Beschaffenheit des Selbstverständlichen im Denken des Thomas von Aquin (1996), La ragione nei discorsi: linguaggio, logica, argomentazione (2010), and Persone che giudicano: lineamenti di epistemologia (2016). In 2009 he edited a collection of studies on Newman’s thought entitled John Henry Newman: un cristiano che interroga la modernità.
