University of Genova
After receiving a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Genoa in 2006, Cristina Amoretti has been Post Doctoral Fellow at the University of Genoa and at the ICT of the CNR, Rome, Visiting Scholar at the University of Malta, and Visiting Research Fellow at King’s College, London. Moving from Donald Davidson’s triangular externalism, she focused her research on different kinds of externalism and defended the idea of an embodied and embedded mind. Her current interests regard philosophy of science (the social dimension of scientific knowledge and rationality), philosophy of mind and cognitive sciences (content and vehicle externalism; semantic and phenomenal externalism), as well as philosophy of medicine (gender-medicine; the relationship between an externalist theory of mind and the notion of mental disorder). Among her latest publications: Concepts within the model of triangulation, ProtoSociology, 30, 2013, pp. 50-63; A way of saving normative epistemology? Scientific knowledge without standpoint theories (with N. Vassallo), in: V. Karakostas, D. Dieks (eds.), Perspectives and Foundational Problems in Philosophy of Science (Springer 2013); The Mind Outside The Head. Externalist Perspectives About The Mental (Italian - FrancoAngeli 2011); Reason and Rationality (ed. with N. Vassallo - Ontos 2012); Triangulation: From an Epistemological Point of View (ed. with G. Preyer - Ontos 2011).
