Some of the stuff I have published in the media

 

At the on-line newspaper The Objective I write an op-ed every second week since March 8, 2016, as well as other occasional contributions.

Some of those articles have been published as well by the World Economic Forum: Democracy is not what they told you at school and Who was (not) Martin Luther.

The newspaper El País published in January 15, 2018 my obituary about the philosopher Mario Perniola. (A copy with higher resolution can be found here). Also in El País I have signed with other authors the text España en común, España plural (Spain in common, Plural Spain) in April 4, 2016 (here, the paper version of this article).

I wrote op-eds for the Spanish on-line newspaper Vozpópuli between 2015 and 2016. The title for those contributions is Pólemos.

In the same on-line newspaper Vozpópuli I have written as well about the possibility of a “Clarity Act” for Catalonia (23/10/2015), on the different proposals on culture by the platforms of the main Spanish political parties (08/12/2015) at the election of December 20, 2015, on why the so-called “gender ideology” does not exist (24/12/2016) and a kind of manifesto called Against Dialogue (7/10/2017).

The online newspaper El Semanal Digital has also published one of my op-eds: Are there five million Communists in Spain?

I have debated about animalism in op-eds published in newspapers like Libertad Digital (“Classical liberals and the animalist ideology”) or El Mundo-Diario de Valladolid (“Freedom and Truth”)

In number 8 (May 2012) of the magazine Zapping Magazine I published a text titled Philosophizing in front of the TV set, into the section “TV Asessment”

I have also collaborated with the website DRS? No, thanks, with an article on Why the deposit-refund system ruins the idea that recycling is a duty.

For the Bilbao newspaper El Correo I have written several op-eds about the Ethics of Journalism: e.g. about the limits of what we are allowed to see in TV or about privacy rights of famous people.

I also published at El Correo an obituary for Richard Rorty after his death in the summer of 2007; an obituary that an academic journal wanted to publish as well some time later

The Peruvian newspaper Expreso published in February 2005 a small reflection of mine about my favorite philosopher, Ludwig Wittgenstein

The cultural supplement Batuecas of the Salamanca newspaper Tribuna de Salamanca gave me the chance to expose some ideas about the relationship between Western and Indian Thought, at the time of the 2nd Spanish Indologist Conference at Salamanca (September 1997).

I spent some years (2006-2015) as a member of a political party in Spain. One of the results of such an activity were some op-eds that I published in newspapers like ABCVozpópuli, El Mundo-Diario de Valladolid, El Norte de Castilla or La Gaceta Regional (Salamanca). I also translated a text of political content for the online newspaper Rebelión.

Some of my appearances in the media
