    Dificultades para la superveniencia estética
    Areté. Revista de Filosofía 27 (2): 66-84. 2015.
    In the last half century,there were several attempts to adopt the notion of supervenience in order to shed light on the claim of generality that is involved in aesthetic judgments. In this paper I will show the difficulties brought up by the transposition of the notion of supervenience from other areas of philosophy to the philosophy of art and I will also show the intrinsic difficulties of this project.

In order to sketch this option, I shall consider the main argument against ty…Read more

    The Will to Communicate
    Critica 45 (133): 91-97. 2013.
    In this paper I discuss Rodriguez-Pereyra�s claim according to which analytical philosophy should be published exclusively in English. I focus my reply on three issues: (1) the implicit conception of philosophy and of the philosophical practice that underlies his argument, (2) the myth of the �native speaker� and (3) some values that should guide philosophy and which I propose to highlight
