This thesis develops a nominalist approach for the area of Philosophical Logic that deals with existence and identity.
It does so from an epistemic perspective, with the objective of describing what a philosopher can call knowledge when discussing such topics.
One of the features of the Philosophical Inquisitive Logic (PhIL) here outlined is given by techniques from Inquisitive Logic. Such semantics is expressive enough to characterize not only declarative statements but also questions, in the optics that within philosophy a good unanswered question is as important as a good answer.
The other non-classical approach used is Partial Semantics, that makes it possible to deal with multivalued logics.
