Alejandro Naranjo Sandoval is currently a fifth year graduate student in the Department of Philosophy at Princeton. His main areas of interest are Kant and other philosophers of the 17th and 18th centuries (especially Leibniz), philosophy of mind, logic and philosophy of logic, epistemology, and social philosophy, including the philosophy of race.
Regarding Kant specifically, Alejandro works on his theoretical philosophy in the Critique of Pure Reason and the Critique of the Power of Judgment. His dissertation centers around the relation between Kant’s philosophy of mind and epistemology and Leibniz’s; especially, the relation between their theories of judgment, knowledge, consciousness, and intuition. In respect to Leibniz, Alejandro spent some time piecing together his ideas on philosophy of mind, logic, and epistemology during his so-called middle-period.
Outside of philosophy, Alejandro enjoys playing the drums and listening to jazz. He is also an avid birdwatcher and always excited to explore new places by foot.
