Articles in Newspapers, Magazines and Websites


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, like this interview to the Italian philosopher Diego Fusaro (May 11, 2023).

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.

Two of these articles have been translated to French at the website SoverainQuatre raisons pour lesquelles l’essor de Vox va se poursuivre (29 October 2018) and La gauche pédophraste (April 24, 2019).

Two of these articles have been translated to English: at the website DelibeRatio Is Christianity Over? (August 8, 2023) and at Rorate Caeli: Ten years of Pope Francis: lights, shadows and glooms (March 17, 2023).

I also publish on El Español op-eds that you can see in this page.

I have as well a regular contribution at the blog of Fundación Disenso.

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).

For the newspaper El Mundo I have written long op-eds on Philosophy is on fashion; is it good news? (you can get an image of the paper version here) and Against Transparence, both in 2019. I have also signed, with other authors, the manifesto Talking Bad about this Government: a Manifesto Against Submissivness, in 2020.

I published at the newspaper ABC tris op-ed on the case of plagiarism by the philosopher Manuel Cruz revealed by that very newspaper in 2019, while Cruz was the president of the Spanish Senate.

At the weekly supplement of ABC, Alfa y omega, I have published an op-ed under the title Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know (February 24, 2022). You may read it as well in PDF version.

I write for La Gaceta de la Iberosfera op-eds and for its cultural section, Ideas, as well.

The journal Naves en llamas (n. 17, March 2022) published my articl From the world as a supermarket to the society as a hospital (you may download here the whole issue).

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 (10/23/2015), on the different proposals on culture by the platforms of the main Spanish political parties (12/08/2015) at the election of December 20, 2015, on why the so-called “gender ideology” does not exist (12/24/2016) and a kind of manifesto called Against Dialogue (10/07/2017).

I have a contribution in the issue n. 3 of the magazine mEDium (ED Libros, Barcelona), devoted to the main theme “How to reconstruct the Spanish political right”: It’s the culture, stupid! (2019); and another one to the n. 6 of that magazine, devoted to “The big Spanish culture war” (2020): With permission of pandemia, is “culture war” the expression of the year?.

At the Global Square Magazine I have a long book review of Rod Dreher’s book The Benedictine Option, under the title of  Religion at the Global Square.

At Red Floridablanca I have published For a Humble Liberalism (11/14/2018).

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 El Mundo-Diario de Valladolid (Freedom and Truth) or Libertad Digital (Classical liberals and the animalist ideology). In this newspaper I have also published obituaries for the philosophers  Roger Scruton and George Steiner.

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 Páginas Digital I have written this short assessment of the manifesto published by Communion and Liberation for the Spanish elections of April 2019.

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).

Under the title Liberalismo progresista (o por qué no es del todo aconsejable apellidar “liberal” a cualquiera que ansíe titularse como tal) you may find my contribution to the Liberal Meeting at the Athenaeum of Madrid in January 2009. Other participants in the same debate were Pablo Casado, Albert Rivera, Ana Torme and Fernando Maura.

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.
