Manuel Almagro Holgado

I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Granada (Department of Philosophy I), where I teach and do research with great people. Check out my curriculum here (Spanish, English).

A good amount of my research is focused on reflecting on the relationship between philosophical issues and social practical concerns. Currently, I’m working on the philosophical assumptions behind some prominent concepts of political polarization, and the benefits of different theoretical approaches to the evaluative use of language and to mental state ascriptions, in order to improve our tools to measure political polarization.

I received my PhD from the University of Granada (2021). My PhD Thesis, entitled Seeing Hate from Afar. The Concept of Affective Polarization Reassessed, was supervised by Neftalí Villanueva and Manuel de Pinedo, two fantastic people with whom I have the privilege of continuing working and learning a lot.

Previously, I got a BA in Philosophy from the University of Granada (2015), a MA in Logic and Philosophy of Science from the University of Granada (2016), and a MA in Philosophy Teaching from the University of Granada (2017). Besides, I was working as a research assistant (2017-2018) in the Department of Philosophy II (University of Granada, Spain).
