BA (2007), University of New Mexico, Philosophy
Francisco's primary interest is the work of Martin Heidegger. He is particularly interested in putting Heidegger's analysis of mood into conversation with contemporary theories of emotion, reason, and agency. This conversation, he hopes, will help illuminate the affective bases of rational agency and the role that profound emotional events can play in changing the way a person experiences the world.
Francisco fell in love with philosophy through the study of existentialism, political philosophy, and psychoanalysis, and these topics continue to fascinate him. He is also developing expertise in Latin American philosophy and is finding it helpful and exciting to incorporate these perspectives into his work.
