In the event of the 50th anniversary of the re-building of the Philosophy Department of Sun Yat-sen University in 2010, an award was given to him to acknowledge his contributions to the areas of philosophy, philosophy of science, logic, and cognitive science.

Magnani's primary research interests are the philosophy of science, logic, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and philosophy of medicine. His historical research has centered on 19th- and 20th-century geometry and the philosophy of geometry.

Currently he is studying the processes of conceptual innovation and change in science also in the perspective of abductive reasoning.

Recently he addressed the problem of the relationships between morality and technology and the problem of violence in a philosophical and cognitive perspective.
