Francisco Pereira



I am a philosopher currently working full time at the Philosophy Department of Universidad Alberto Hurtado located in Santiago, Chile. My areas of specialization are Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Perception and Epistemology. My areas of competence are Philosophy of Languaje and the History of Modern Philosophy with particular emphasis on Hume.

I few years ago I organized in conjunction with several other researchers a project called Sociedad Chilena de Filosofía Analítica, a  small society that hopefully will provide a new space for academic debate in South America.  I am also an active member of the Santiago Mind / Cognition Research Group.

Right now I am the President of the Asociación Latinoamericana de Filosofía Analítica ALFAn.

My research is currently focused on topics connected with conceptualism and the possibility of non-conceptual content,  disjunctive theories of perception,  the role of  attention and action in conscious mental representation and Hume´s theory of knowledge.

Descargar Curriculum Vitae: 


Nature has pointed out a mixed kind of life as most suitable to the human race, and secretly admonished them to allow none of these biases to draw too much, so as to incapacitate them for other occupations and entertainments. Indulge your passion for science, says she, but let your science be human, and such as may have a direct reference to action and society. Abstruse thought and profound researches I prohibit, and will severely punish, by the pensive melancholy which they introduce, by the endless uncertainty in which they involve you, and by the cold reception which your pretended discoveries shall meet with, when communicated. Be a philosopher; but, amidst all your philosophy, be still a man.

David Hume
