Hugo Viciana

I am an assistant professor of Philosophy working at the intersection of philosophy and the cognitive and behavioral sciences.

I am currently based at the Departamento de Filosofía, Lógica y Filosofía de la Ciencia, Universidad de Sevilla. Previously I have held research or teaching positions at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, the Institute for Advanced Social Studies of the Spanish National Research Council (IESA-CSIC), the Instituto de Filosofia (IFS-CSIC), the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD-Paris), the Psychology Department of the University of the Balearic Islands, and the University of Malaga. I have also been a visiting researcher at several institutions including the Center for Behavior, Evolution, and Culture at the University of California Los Angeles, and the Social Norms group at the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Program at UPenn.

You can scroll down and check some of my publications or visit ResearchGate to find preprints of most of them. And here is a list of some previous and current projects on my public profile on Open Science Framework. Feel free to write me a mail [name.surname@gmail] or private message me in twitter.
