Juan Manuel Cincunegui de la Vega

I hold a BA and PhD in Philosophy from Ramon Llull University (2010), a PhD in Citizenship and Human Rights from the University of Barcelona (2018), and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Barcelona (2023).

I did Buddhist studies in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka (1992-1999), where I had the opportunity to do extensive solitary meditative practices. I have been teaching Buddhist philosophy and meditation since 1998.

I am currently developing interdisciplinary research in the field of Practical Philosophy, with special emphasis on Cognitive Biology, Philosophy of Mind, Phenomenology, and Buddhist Epistemology and Psychology.
