About me
Welcome! I'm a PhD student member of the PERSP Project (Universität de Barcelona) and the LOGOS Group at the University of Barcelona. I've been assistant professor of Philosophy and Psychology at some universities in Colombia (2007-2010). I've also worked as researcher for the Colombian Givernment (COLCIENCIAS). My research areas are Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science, Perceptual and Cogntive Psychology, and Metaphilosophy. In psychology, I've made research work in clinical neuropsychology from a neurocomputational point of view. Before moving to Barcelona in 2011, I did a master (MPhil) in phiosophy of mind and cognitive science at the Universidad del Valle (Colombia- 2007-2009). My undergraduate studies are in philosophy (2002-2006) and psychology (2003-2010) at the same university. Nowadays, I'm dedicated to developing a new theory of visibility and visual information.

  1. Carlos Muñoz-Suárez, Transparency, Revelation and Sensory Knowledge. Gauging the Explananda to a Theory of Phenomenal Presence.
    There are two arguments in contemporary philosophy of consciousness and perception with which every theory of sensory awareness and phenomenal presence must deal: the Argument from Transparency and the Argument from Revelation. The first one is about the intentionality of sensations or conscious sensory states and the second one is about their epistemic role. These both arguments depend, on the one hand, on specific interpretations of ‘transparency’ and ‘revelation’ and, on the other hand, on specifying the formal structures that they (...)

  2. Carlos Muñoz-Suárez & Felipe De Brigard (eds.) (forthcoming). Content and Consciousness Revisited. With Replies by Daniel Dennett. Springer.
    What are the grounds for the distinction between the mental and the physical? What is it the relation between ascribing mental states to an organism and understanding its behavior? Are animals and complex systems vehicles of inner evolutionary environments? Is there a difference between personal and sub-personal level processes in the brain? Answers to these and other questions were developed in Daniel Dennett’s first book, Content and Consciousness (1969), where he sketched a unified theoretical framework for views that are now (...)

  6. Carlos Mario Muñoz-Suárez (2009). Sensations, Perceptions and Conceptions. Remarks on Assessability for Accuracy. In V. Munz, J. Wang & K. Puhl (eds.), Language and World. Niederösterreichkultur.
    I shall specify about what we are thinking when we are talking about regulating something by specifying accuracy conditions. The main thesis is that we couldn’t describe representational relations as perceptual relationships if we lack a normative conception of relationships between representing and represented. Hence, searching for what it is assessable for accuracy depends on specifying the kind of intentional content which is normatively individuated and attributed.

  7. Carlos Mario Muñoz-Suárez & René J. Campis (2008). Did I Do It? Yeah, You Did! On Wittgenstein and Libet on Free Will. In Hannes Leitgeb & Alexander Hieke (eds.), Reduction and Elimination in Philosophy and the Sciences: Papers of the 31st International Wittgenstein Symposium. Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society.
    In this paper we analyze Libet’s conclusions on «free will» (FW), rejecting his view of the concept and defending a partially aligned view with Wittgenstein’s early remarks on FW. First, the concept of Readiness Potential (RP) and Libet’s view are presented. Second, we offer an account of Wittgenstein´s point of view. Third, a dual-domain analysis is proposed; finally, we offer our conclusions. This article´s conclusions are part of an ongoing research.
