FILIPPO CONTESI

I am a philosopher, currently a Juan de la Cierva Postdoctoral Fellow at LOGOS and at the University of Barcelona. I was previously a US–Italy Fulbright Research Scholar in the Philosophy Department at Temple University and an École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales Postdoctoral Fellow at the Jean Nicod Institute. I did my PhD in aesthetics at the University of York, after studying at the Universities of Leeds and Bari. My research focuses on various issues in empirically-informed philosophy of emotions and aesthetics, philosophy of food and history of aesthetics, as well as on metaphilosophical and practical issues surrounding the use of English as a lingua franca in academic philosophy.
