Postdoc fellow, RWTH Aachen University

Erica Onnis is a research fellow at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg “Cultures of Research” of the RWTH Aachen University. 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 at the University of Turin since 2016. During her PhD she has been a visiting student at the University College Cork, at the University of Lisbon, and at Wuhan University.

Erica’s research interests lie in metaphysics and philosophy of science. In particular, her doctoral research concerned the nature of emergent phenomena, and the relation between the notion of emergence and those of reduction, novelty, complexity, and causation. About these topics, it will be soon available her book Metafisica dell’emergenza (Metaphysics of Emergence), which will be published in October 2021 by Rosenberg & Sellier.

Erica is also interested in Chinese language and philosophy and she is 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.
