Bio and General Interests

Originally hailing from Mexico City, I completed my B.A. in Philosophy (summa cum laude) and Mathematics (cum laude) from Cornell University in the spring of 2015. My main interests are Kant and other philosophers of the 17th and 18th centuries (especially Leibniz), philosophy of mind, logic and philosophy of logic, and philosophy of mathematics (roughly in that order).

Regarding Kant specifically, I work on his theoretical philosophy in the Critique of Pure Reason and the Critique of the Power of Judgment. Lately I've been thinking about his doctrine of noumenal ignorance, as well as his theories of cognition and mental content. In respect to Leibniz, I've spent some time piecing together his ideas on philosophy of mind, logic, language, and dynamics during his so-called middle-period.

Outside philosophy, I enjoy playing the drums and listening to jazz. I am also interested in modern art, and I'm always excited to explore new places by foot. Less loftily, I always look forward to playing with my two cats after a hard day's work.
For the academic year 17-18, I'll be a graduate representative for the Philosophy Department. I'm also part of Princeton's Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) chapter.
Please note that both 'Naranjo' and 'Sandoval' are last names, as in the case of 'Gabriel García Márquez' and 'Alejandro González Iñárritu.' Accordingly, I alphabetize my name under 'N.'
