My name is Juan Carlos González. I’m from Miami, Florida. I’m currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Colby College. I completed my Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of California San Diego in the spring of 2024; my dissertation developed and defended a new interpretation of Kant’s philosophy of nature.

As a researcher and a teacher, I blend the traditional (Kant, Modern European Philosophy, Continental Philosophy, Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy) with the non-traditional (Mexican, Cuban, and Latinx Philosophy). When I’m not writing, reading, or teaching philosophy, I play my bass guitar (pictured below), make movies, and root for my favorite NBA team,
the Miami Heat
