Francisco Haro Almansa

Francisco Haro Almansa graduated in philosophy in 2015. He is currently working on a doctoral thesis at the University of Málaga on the problem of the Indeterminacy of Matter in physics (from Laplace's demon to quantum mechanics) and in Aristotelian philosophy. His research focuses on the philosophical assumptions (ontological and gnoseological) of the problem of the indeterminacy of matter, such as the problem of causality, the concept of movement or the essence of matter. Francisco Haro Almansa defends the idea that the concepts of Aristotelian natural philosophy (especially "potency" or "ens per accidens") allow for an adequate resolution of this much debated question in contemporary physics.

Research interests: philosophy of nature, determination of matter, problem of causality, metaphysics, Aristotle, modern physics, quantum mechanics.

He is visiting BioKoinos from September 1st to November 30th 2022.
