Pixie Shen

University of Toronto, Hons. BSc

Pixie completed her Honours Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in 2020 at Toronto, where she developed an interest in the Early Analytic tradition. After the heartbreaking realization that Frege and Wittgenstein did not give her the ultimate truth of the universe, she decided to start all over to become a metaphysician and carve the nature at its joints. She’s now obsessed with certain contemporary metaphysics that is historically-informed, especially topics such as metaphysical grounding and ontological pluralism. Naturally, she started her PhD at Notre Dame, where she continues to look for the meaning of 42. Let's hope she finds something.
