PhD Student, FINO Consortium
Erica Onnis is a third-year PhD student in Theoretical Philosophy at the University of Turin (FINO Consortium), where she has been a member of the Labont – Center for Ontology since 2015. She has been working as a seminar lecturer and teaching assistant in Theoretical Philosophy (course leaders: Prof. Tiziana Andina and Prof. Maurizio Ferraris) since 2017. During her PhD she has also been a visiting PhD candidate at the University College Cork (Ireland) and at the University of Lisbon (Portugal).
Erica’s research interests lie in metaphysics and philosophy of science. In particular, her doctoral research concerns the nature of emergent phenomena, and the relation between the notion of emergence and those of reduction, novelty and complexity.
Erica is also interested in Chinese language and philosophy. Related to this topic, she edited (with Tiziana Andina) a volume dedicated to the Chinese artist Wang Guangyi published by Bloomsbury Academics, and is co-editing (with Ouyang Xiao, Wuhan University) an issue of Rivista di Estetica about the relationships between Western and Chinese thought. Erica is moreover a team member of the recently instituted project between the Wuhan University and the University of Turin, the WHU-UniTO Research Partnership For Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art.
