Courses taught: Introduction to Philosophy, Ethics and Science.
Pedro is a PhD student of Philosophy and teaching fellow at the University of North Texas. He combines his background in physics and atmospheric science with environmental philosophy. Broadly, he is concerned with how interpretations of nature affect the relationship and well-being of people and the environment. More specifically, he is critical of contemporary climate change discourses that emphasize technological, scientific, and economic solutions to global warming while precluding a fundamental reinterpretation of the nature/culture relationship. His work negotiates between the ontologies of modern science, Continental European and Decolonial philosophies, with the aim of developing an ethical theory of life and climate grounded in ontology.
