Paula Olmos (Madrid, 1968) has been based at several Spanish academic institutions (UC3M, UNED) as a Researcher in Classics and Philosophy, and has been a Visiting Scholar at the universities of Cambridge (UK), Pavia (Italy) and Stanford (USA). Her research interests include different aspects of the history of logic, argumentation and rhetoric – particularly in periods with a strong classical inspiration, as the early-modern Spanish humanism or the Latin late antiquity – as well as the contemporary theory of argumentation, in which she takes a rhetorical stance. She has published papers on these issues in journals like Informal Logic, Theoria, Res Publica Litterarum (Salerno), Renaissance Studies, Argumentation, Studies in History and Philosophy of Science (Cambridge) and Intellectual History Review. She is the author of a monograph on the Spanish sixteenth-century philosopher Pedro Simón Abril (Los negocios y las ciencias. Lógica, argumentación y metodología en la obra filosófica de Pedro Simón Abril (ca. 1540–1595); Madrid: CSIC, 2010) and co-editor, together with Luis Vega, of the collective encyclopaedic volume Compendio de Lógica, Argumentación y Retórica (Madrid: Trotta, 2011, 2nd ed. 2012).
